Tagline: "Crazy in Love"

Synopsis: From the award winning graphic novel by The Batman Animated Series creators comes the story of Harleen Quinzel, the psychiatrist who tried to understand the mind of The Joker, but in turn fell in love. To prove her feelings, the new Harley Quinn sets out to capture and kill the Batman. Unfortunately, when her feelings aren't fully returned, a love/hate relationship developes, all the while driving even the Joker a little

What the press would say:

It's a mad mad mad love. Christian Bale selflessly takes a back seat for Christopher Nolan to take a different direction with this psuedo-sequel to his previous Batman effort, centralizing on the villians rather than the Batman. He brilliantly and bravely shy's away from Batman's inner struggle to focus on what it's like to be a bit crazy and a bit in love. New Academy darlings Naomi Watts and Johnny Depp are magnetic bringing a mountain of essentic characteristics to their roles. More than enough for the Academy to notice. A brilliant adaptation from a great piece of graphic novel writing.
