Vanilla Sky

vanilla sky tom cruise penelope cruz

A remake of the Spanish film Open You Eyes (1997), this thriller from director Cameron Crowe bears one of several discarded titles for his previous, Oscar-winning film Almost Famous (2000). Tom Cruise stars as David Ames, a womanizing playboy who finds romantic redemption when he falls in love with his best friend’s girlfriend Sofia (Penelope Cruz, reprising her role from the original film). Before that relationship can begin, however, David is coaxed into a car driven by an ex-lover, Julie (Cameron Diaz), who turns out to be suicidal. Driving her car off a bridge, julie kills herself and horribly disfigures DAvid. Reconstructive surgery and the loving support of Sofia seem to reverse David’s luck,  but eerie incidents are soon making him question the reality of his existence and this control over his life, even while he is suspected of complicity in Julie’s death. Vanilla Sky (2001) bears the expected Crowe trademark of an obsession with recent pop culture and particularly rock music, a more important element of the remake than the original movie.
