Mulholland Falls - Hot Jennifer Connelly to the RescueThe Hot Spot," "Inventing the Abbotts," and this film, "Mulholland Falls" (1996), directed by Lee Tamahori from a script and story by Pete Dexter and Floyd Mutrux. Is it worth picking up this fairly pedestrian crime melodrama set in the early 1950s just to catch about 30 seconds of Jennifer Connelly doing her thing? Only you can say that. "Mulholland Falls" is, though, a good trip back into the 1950s, the conservative decade which is the usual setting (see "Mischief," for instance) for actresses looking to bare a little skin in the most innocent-seeming environment where that reasonably could happen.
