Director Ang Lee is responsible for several award-­winning cinematic works, including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain and Life of Pi. At first glance, his latest feature appears to be an odd selection, as the filmmaker takes on what appears to be a...

This title is certainly nice to look at, but will...
