IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Leading actor Shia LaBeouf may currently be in the headlines for the wrong reasons (just don’t take him to any musicals in the near future…) but his central performance in Charlie Countryman should serve as a reminder as to why he became so popular in the first place.
