In a follow up to 2006's
, this ensemble piece consisted of 10 short segments following the lives of different couples in New York. With a strong cast of well established actors including Chris Cooper, Robin Wright Penn and Andy Garcia, this was a different kind of project for LaBeouf who shared scenes with Julie Christie and was directed by
director Shekhar Kapur.
His segment, however, was quite strange, set in a heaven-like hotel room where he plays a crippled bellboy waiting on Christie's opera singer before she kills herself. He tries his best at getting his tongue around a new accent, albeit unsuccessfully.
No, he's just a strange figment of Christie's imagination/memory/yearnings.
