Giuseppe Tornatore's new film "Correspondence," in which lovers Olga Kurylenko and Jeremy Irons communicate largely via Skype and text messages, marks the Oscar-winning director's third English-language film after "The Legend of 1900" and, more recently, art world thriller "The Best Offer," which did stellar biz at the Italian box office in 2013 and sold widely around the world.
