"Kendrick is a fast-talking delight (she keeps revealing more layers)."
Movie Anticipation (and another possible OSCAR Watch)!
"Helen Mirren proves yet again that she can do anything, playing Leo Tolstoy's wife in this grandly entertaining historical drama." (Click here to read the full review)
I am really looking forward to this one as I love historical movies and I love the movies based on Tolstoy's Anna Karenina (unfortunately, I have never read the book, but don't worry...it's on my TBR pile!). And, of course, I LOVE Helen Mirren. Ever since her brilliant portrayal of Morgana in the excellent Arthurian film Excalibur way back in 1981, I have followed and admired her stellar acting ability. Let us watch and see what unfolds with The Last Station and, meanwhile, I will be enjoying the film very soon!
Both movies are based on books: Up in the Air by Walter Kim and The Last Station by Jay Parini. Two great selections for the 30 Books to Movies Challenge hosted by The Bibliophile's Lounge.
Final Note: I CAN'T WAIT FOR SHERLOCK HOLMES!!! ROBERT DOWNEY JR. ***SIGH***
Happy Viewing (and Reading)!
