Aloha centres on 37-year-old disgraced US weapons consultant Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper, right), who is disliked by mostly everyone. His only friend is a techie named Jeremy “a super-smart and highly aware computer”.
As a response to aggression from China, Gilcrest is deployed to a dormant military base in Hawaii to supervise the launch of an advanced spy satellite. Together with the anal and humorless Major Lisa Ng, he must secure the blessings of the native Hawaiian council before the launch. Gilcrest also gets a chance to meet with Tracy, the one love of his life who got away, along with her husband and two kids. On the island he discovers himself.
Aloha is directed by Cameron Crowe and also stars Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin and Danny McBride, and is released in the UK on September 4th, and I’m not wholly sold on it, but no doubt women will flock to see him grinning away on the big screen as usual.
