Duplicity, the new romantic comedy/thriller starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen, has a twisty globetrotting plot that takes the stars from Rome to London to New York to Miami to … Dunwoody?
Yep. At one point in this convoluted but delightful film (courtesy of Tony Gilroy who also made “Michael Clayton”), there’s a wink and a nod from the once-and-forever sweetheart of Smyrna, Ms. Roberts. Or I at least assume it may have been her suggestion.
As she and Owen are trying to find a crack in the seemingly uncrackable façade of a cosmetics giant, they discover the company has purchased a little building in … that’s right, Dunwoody, Georgia.
Nothing recognizable is shown, just a generic brick building with something like Dunwoody Industrial pasted on its side. Still, several locals in my audience cracked up. Dunwoody … where high-flying corporate crooks funnel their ill-gotten gains!
