George Clooney:Trailer for The American

I have sat in the cafe you can see in the trailer of the film called "The American", which is set in Castel del Monte, a fabulous little village high up in the Abruzzo mountains, about 30 minutes from home. Castel del Monte is one of Abruzzo's best kept secrets- a beautiful jewel of a medieval village. The cafe owners have a big signed photo of Mr George Clooney behind the bar. I just missed him by a few hours when I went to Castel del Monte earlier this year specifically to meet him.

Nice find Janet, George Clooney has a clear voice and neutral accent which makes his movies good input for EFL lessons. We shall no doubt soon create an English Attack! video booster from a clip from this movie (I'm also eager to visit the village; will no doubt do so on my next trip to the Old Country!)

Hi Paul

Thanks for popping by with your comment. I'm really looking forward to viewing the movie when it comes out next month. The village will definitely live up to your expectations when you visit it.

Your video booster clip sounds interesting and will look out for it!

Hi Chris

I wish that was true!! I'm going to see if I can find out when he is next in Abruzzo, and then plan the meeting better. In my dreams, I think!
