PHONE BOOTH

Tues­day 5.30pm, Show­time Drama (MA15+) ★★★

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Movie Reviews -

Jim Car­rey walked around this movie for a long while, then sim­ply walked away, so di­rec­tor Joel Schu­macher called in a favour from Colin Far­rell. Here Far­rell plays Stu Shep­ard, a fast-talk­ing Broad­way press agent who uses a pay phone, rather than his mo­bile, be­cause he wants to call his mis­tress (Aus­tralian Radha Mitchell) and doesn’t want his wife ( Katie Holmes) to see the call on his ac­count. Just as he goes to pick up the phone, it rings. For the next 75-odd fairly in­tense min­utes, he is at the mercy of a sniper known only as The Voice.
