OVERRATED: 'The Woman in the Fifth' (2012)

: An ambitious import that seems to exist only to find out if Ethan Hawke can survive a movie while primarily speaking French, this film wastes a Parisian setting and a promising premise by mistaking a convoluted plot for intrigue. The story of a wayward American writer with a dubious past, the film's left-field twists and possibly imaginary characters add up to less of a film than an exercise, one that ends only in frustration.
