My Week with Marilyn review

Here's Lettie's review of My Week with Marilyn...
I went to see My Week with Marilyn on 27th November 2011 - a nice Sunday evening film.  I went to see it, of course, because I am a huge Julia Ormond fan and, no surprises, she stole every scene she was in.  She performed the role of Vivienne Leigh to perfection and she looked as lovely as Vivienne Leigh bringing the same lady like charm to the role as the real Vivienne Leigh had in life and on screen.  Michelle Williams also portrayed Marilyn Monroe to perfection - unfortunately a very troubled and shallow character in real life - and I would not be surprised if Michelle Williams is nominated for an award for her portrayal of the actress.  It is not Julia's best film but it is certainly worth a see for the fans.  She has quite alot of screen time and her acting is always superb.

Julia Ormond: Slavery like virus in supply chain

Thanks to Jo and Rudy for sending in a link to a Julia video interview on CNN.

Actress Julia Ormond, known for her roles in "Legends of the Fall" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," has been an activist against human trafficking since the 1990s.

In an interview with CNN's Richard Quest, she talks about how the consumer, government and business all play roles in ensuring the supply chain for goods is free of slavery.

"I ... think it's really important that the consumer acknowledges how challenging this is for business," she says. "I think it's important that we understand it as this is like a virus that affects the supply chain. It's not like business is going out there and looking for slavery. The environment that the supply chain is in enables slavery.

"We need business mentality at the table to finding solutions," she adds. "It's not the NGO's role to work out what's the best solution for that industry. They know their supply chain intimately. ... They are sitting on the solution."

Thanks to Rudy for this youtube trailer of Julia's new movie The Green.

You know, I like being able to type "Julia's" and "new movie" in the same sentence. I can remember the dark times when it seemed she would never make another movie...
