So, finally I have added over 1300 HD quality screen captures of Amy on her most recent work “Trouble With The Curve”. You can find it already on DVD/Blu-Ray so, be sure to get your own copy. Amy is fantastic as Mickey, in one of her most finest works.
Amy is cover of Italian “Tu Style” magazine, and my friend Claudia was nice enough to scan it to us. Check in our gallery, and also the translated article behind the cut.
Even Superman falls in love with me.
She says she’s a little clumsy. But in the latest two years she starred in six movies, she had a baby girl, and played in theatre. And in 2013 she will be Lois Lane, girlfriend of flying super hero. How can she manage doing this? Easy: her partner thinks of the rest. Because in life charism counts, but if nobody stands for you, where would you go?

Trouble With The Curve’s old-fashioned qualities and romanticism veer into hokiness, but , but the film gets a major charge from Amy Adams, who plays Gus’ daughter Mickey. In a spirited, nuanced performance, Adams subtly undermines the film’s tacit approval of its protagonist’s ways. A dedicated lawyer on track for partnership at her Atlanta firm, Mickey’s learned to hide in her work and to keep people at an emotional distance from her dad, who shipped her away to live with family when she was six and her mother passed away.
Adams doesn’t play Mickey as brittle or snippy, which has become lazy actor shorthand for the workaholic females in movies. She’s guarded but warm, and keeps reaching out to her father via calls and dinners, despite his apparent indifference and unintentionally harsh words. We know that Gus loves his daughter, he just has trouble expressing it. When Mickey isn’t around, he has no trouble praising her in the presence of others. But over the course of the film, Mickey’s refusal to give up on her relationship with her father, despite being repeatedly rebuffed by him, starts looking more like strength than her remaining parent’s growling dedication to doing things the right way.
The same qualities show up in Mickey’s tentative romance with new scout Johnny (Justin Timberlake, always welcome), a former pitcher scouted by Gus years ago who blew out his arm and now aims for an announcer job. He charms his way past her defenses, and she in turn acknowledges her tendency to keep people at a distance. Mickey demonstrates that being able to bend, to acknowledge your faults and work on them requires more courage than always standing your ground. Adams quietly steals the movie out from under her co-star, and she does it while steering clear of the stereotypical ruts that could have mired her performance in mediocrity. Adams and her unexpected approach to her scenes with Eastwood bring Trouble With The Curve to life and give it more animation than its formula would suggest.

TWTC has its premiere last night in USA, and there’s some reviews online already, which are being good so far. Mostly of reviews are praising Amy’s performance, specially if compared with her work on “The Master”, since both Peggy Dodd and Mickey are really different characters which Amy plays beautifully!
Eastwood, though charmingly grumpy and brimming with vitriol, steps back in “Curve” and lets Adams take center stage. The actress, also currently co-starring in “The Master,” hits her role out of the park. At first we see her as a flustered and bitter workaholic. As the film progresses she transforms into a vulnerable, but angry, daughter, before inhabiting the returned innocence of a young girl in love with baseball. Watching Adams drop her guard and join Eastwood in the love of the game is a real treat. Between her performance here and in “The Master,” it won’t be long before she’s an Oscar winner.- Fox News
It’d be more boring if the company weren’t so agreeable. Adams, the three-time Oscar nominee who’s great whether she’s being sweet (“Enchanted”), scrappy (“The Fighter”) or stoic (“Doubt,” “The Master”), seems to be having fun just letting her red hair down. – NY Daily
Of course the movie is sentimental. A fairy tale? Yes, it’s that too. Satisfying? Yep. The key, I think, is the restaurant scene between Adams and Eastwood where she confronts him about how she was, and wasn’t, raised by Gus. It’s played by both actors with minimal fuss and maximum honesty. – Chicago Tribune

Thanks to my friend Marica, we have now over 30 new beautiful HQ pictures of Amy last Saturday during the “Trouble With The Curve” press conference. Enjoy!
I guess I’m a little bit confused. After being told up one side and down the other to beware Robert Lorenz’s “Trouble with the Curve,” I found myself liking it just fine. It’s a bit unruly in spots and amateurly conceived in others, but never to detriment. And even Clint Eastwood’s grizzled performance, threatening to make good on the promise of “Gran Torino” (i.e. that he’ll be in the self-parody business from here on out) didn’t strike the sour chord I expected it to.
Then as the movie went along, I realized the framing — my framing — was all wrong. This isn’t Clint Eastwood’s movie. This is Amy Adams’s movie. And she’s great. Coupled with “The Master,” her work here further shows a dynamic range for the actress, who by the way landed three Oscar nominations in just six years, for those keeping score at home. And if you’re still not convinced, have a look at “On the Road,” where she shows up out of nowhere and gives a unique if brief take opposite Viggo Mortensen.
In Lorenz’s film, Adams stars as Mickey (you can probably guess the reference), a young professional doing a pretty good job of keeping distance between herself and the potential suitors in her life. There’s a reason, of course, and that’s the sense of abandonment she took away from her early life with a single father, Gus (Eastwood), who spent most of his time on the road scouting for Major League Baseball. The script (from writer Randy Brown) sets her up on a scouting trip that doubles as a therapy session and, along the way, lessons are learned, breakthroughs are made and a valid enough theme is woven throughout.continue reading »
