Todd Robinson, Lonely Hearts



With the true-life crime sizzler Lonely Hearts, writer-director Todd Robinson has fashioned a cinematic love letter to the genre. John Travolta stars as the filmmaker's grandfather, Long Island police detective Elmer Robinson, who, with his partner (James Gandolfini), solved the notorious serial-killing spree by the couple known as The Lonely Hearts Killers (played by Salma Hayek and Jared Leto). In the late 1940s the duo seduced, robbed, and murdered women they met through lonely hearts ads in magazines. This story was previously told in Leonard Kastle's 1970 cult film, The Honeymoon Killers. In this version Robinson and his powerhouse cast view it from the detectives' point of view.
