I Love You, Phillip Morris (Even If The U.S. Didn't) 

New DVD release

I Love You, Phillip Morris almost didn't see the inside of U.S. theaters. Controversy surrounded the film, which unapologetically featured Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as lovers. Despite a strong appearance at Sundance 2009, the film didn't have an American theatrical release until December 2010. Eventually, independent distributor Roadside Attractions stepped up, saying, "We had been in hot pursuit of the film at Sundance."

In this black comedy, Steven Russell (Carrey, in a much-praised performance) is a conman-turned-romantic in his jail cell affair with Phillip Morris (McGregor). A gritty cousin to Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can, I Love You, Phillip Morris is one worth pursuing.
