Katie Holmes is hoping for a career boost with latest movie Touched By Fire.
The Batman Begins appears in the film that was written and directed by first-time filmmaker Paul Dalio, son of American hedge-fund billionaire Ray Dalio.
Touched By Fire is an autobiographical study depicting a romance between fellow bipolar sufferers played by Katie (Carla) and actor Luke Kirby (Marco). The film also stars Christine Lahti (Sara) and Griffin Dunne (George) and is co-produced by Spike Lee. Paul Dalio suffers from the manic-depressive disorder himself.
Katie admits she is attracted by the subject matter despite not being knowledgeable about the condition. Deadline has already called her turn in the movie "superb", and this may prove to be a turning point in the actress' career.

Actress Christine Lahti jumped at the chance to appear in bipolar director Paul Dalio's new movie so she could honour her sister, who fought the condition.
The Running On Empty star plays the mother of Katie Holmes' bipolar character in Touched With Fire and she admits watching her co-star go through the motions of a manic depressive brought back wonderful and terrible memories of her sister's battle.
"My sister struggled with severe bipolar illness and I mean her highs were psychotic highs and her lows were very bad," Christine told WENN. "So I went into this film with a lot of knowledge.
"I read the script and I met with Paul and, since he's bipolar, I thought I had to do this film. This is his story in a way."

Emily and Marco are two talented, bipolar poets whose creativity is fuelled by their emotional extremes. When they meet in a treatment facility, they become embroiled in a romance that mixes art and passion and brings them together as two misunderstood outsiders against the world.
But their instant and intense chemistry only serves to drive their mania to new heights, as they pursue a wild and passionate romance against the advice of their family and professional carers. Swinging between fantastical highs and tormented lows, the two must ultimately choose between sanity and love, before they destroy themselves and each other.
Written and directed by Paul Dalio, Touched with Fire is an intense, romantic drama that blends the beauty of art and creativity with the often dark reality of mental illness. It wowed critics earlier this year at the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival and stars Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby in the two lead roles.
Main star Amanda Seyfried receives a warm greeting from fans and paparazzi as she arrives at a screening for her new movie 'Lovelace' at the Museum of Modern Art in New York where she signs several autographs and poses for photos with fans. She is seen rubbing her eyebrow and apparently smudging her make-up before an assistant rushes over to fix her face.
Oscar-winning actress Christine Lahti injured her back while filming steamy scenes for new movie Petunia.
The comedy/drama, which was screened at New York's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender film festival NewFest on Saturday (28Jul12), tells the story of a family whose individual members are looking for love.
However, Lahti, 62, struggled to cope with recording the raunchier scenes of the film.
She tells the New York Post, "We did that scene on a dining room table which, I understand, others have done. I tell you, my back was hurting. But I wasn't naked. I've never done that in films, I'm too old to do it now. We filmed it movie style. Post-lovemaking. Like he's bare-chested, and I'm pulling up a (bra) strap."

However, the win came at a price for Scott; as he made the final touchdown, an opposing player crashed into him, causing Scott a knee injury that ensures he will never play football again.

Here is the most fantastically overwrought, deliberately melodramatic, white-knuckle B-movie of the year, a film so steeped in the formula of the psycho-sexual suspense flick that it works as both a thriller and a comedy. It is a classic howler, the kind of movie so in on the joke that it invites the audience to scream, shout, and cackle at the screen in a celebration of the collective joy of good trash. And Obsessed is very good trash.

Both the credit and the blame go to writer-director Robert Celestino. His cornball plot shouldn't work, but his direction, especially with actors, does. Chazz Palminteri (Celestino's executive producer) is the title guy, a gambling stiff with an amazing ability to cheat crap games. He'll belly up to a table, pull some David Blaine-like moves to drop tainted dice into a game, and make a fortune. Unfortunately, Atlantic City security has his number, and private games are too small for his ambitions.

The actual line that Al Pacino bellows out in the film's final scene, in case you're wondering, is this: "You're out of order! You're out of order! The whole trial is out of order! They're out of order!" Nah, doesn't quite roll off the tongue the same way, does it?

"There was no other time like it, and it changed our way of life forever," the box's text proclaims. The movie casts "a nostalgic eye on a time when ordinary citizens bonded to accomplish extraordinary things."
