COLD SOULS – a new art house film with overtones of fantasy and science fiction – is playing in limited engagements in the Los Angeles area – at the Arclight Sherman Oaks and at the Landmark in Los Angeles. Paul Giamatti stars as “Paul Giamatti,” an actor preparing for a role in Checkov’s Uncle Vanya: for some reason, the only way he can get out of an artistic rut is by having his soul temporarily removed; unfortunately, it ends up for sale on the black market. Emily Watson and David Straithairn co-star for writer-director Sophie Barthes, whom you can hear interviewed in a podcast at Cinefantastique Online.
