With the exciting combination of Academy Award nominated Jake Gyllenhaal (for Brokeback Mountain), eight-time Academy Award nominated composer James Newton Howard and Oscar buzz for Rene Russo’s gritty portrayal in Nightcrawler, this film is generating a lot of buzz everywhere.

Nightcrawler centers around Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal), a driven young man who is basically scraping by in Los Angeles. One night, he witnesses crime journalist Joe Loder (Bill Paxton) in action and decides to muscle in on this new career prospect. Things start to take off and get out of control after he meets news veteran, Nina Romina (Rene Russo), who enables him to pursue this new-found career, blurring the lines between observer and participant.
