I love Keira Knightley.
She’s a terrific actress and she chooses her roles wisely. She’s smart, pretty and the testimonial for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle.
That’s enough to be annoying, but instead I think she’s nice. I’d like to be best friends with all of her characters.
On top of my list there’s Atonement, one of my favorite movies and favorite books. It’s rare to find such a well done transposition. Keira plays a perfect Cecilia Tallis, and her development of the character as the story enrolls is remarkable. Her wardrobe is too – the green dress is legendary. If you haven’t watched this movie you must asap. And read the book too!
The Edge of Love is less know but yet a great movie. Based on the life of poet Dylan Thomas, the movie is set in England during WWII and explores the life of the poet and the two women he loves and by whom he’s loved and their powerful friendship. It must be said that all the main characters deliver great performances: Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Cillian Murphy and Matthew Rhys.
Last Night is a beautiful and touching movie about relationships and betrayal (physical vs emotional). Keira plays Joanna, a young writer and wife who meets her long lost love while her husband is on a business trip and spends with him a long, nostalgic and passionate night wandering in NY. Her blue dress is stunning.
And even if I didn’t particularly enjoy the entire movie, I think that Juliet & Mark‘s story in Love Actually is very romantic and delicate. And easy to summarize:
And CHANEL. Oh, Chanel!
And, of course, I love it even more since Coco Mademoiselle is “my” fragrance.
