Good intentions go up in smoke in 'Only the Brave'Firefighters must be our last real superheroes. Jennifer Connelly plays fire chief Marsh's veterinarian wife. She adds a complex mix to the testosterone-heavy film but she's also made magical in a baffling scene in which she approaches an abandoned and abused horse and, wielding her soft-eyed empathy, gets it to instantly adore her. The film comes out when real wildfire firefighters are battling massive blazes in Northern California's wine country, spotlighting the men and women who put their lives on the line under horrific conditions to save homes and souls. This film makes such firefighters into cartoons, which ill serves their legacy."Only the Brave" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
