Ask the Dust (2006)

Colin Farrell ('The New World', 'Alexander') and Salma Hayek ('Frida', 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico') sizzle in this adaptation of John Fante's classic novel of desire in the desert.Farrell plays Arturo Bandini, a would-be writer seeking fame, fortune and a blue-eyed blonde in 1930's Los Angeles. Instead, he finds Mexican barmaid Camilla (Hayek), who hopes to blend into Anglo society by marrying a wealthy blue-blood. With remarkable performances, stunning photography, and direction by Academy Award®-winner Robert Towne, 'Ask the Dust' is a powerful story of two castoffs in a struggle between their ambitions and the passion that arises between them.
