Romola Garai Is Awesome

posted by on February 1 at 15:04 PM

I would just like to say: Romola Garai, who’s underused (but extremely pretty and animated) in Michael Apted’s Amazing Grace (out February 23), is awesome. (See Vanity Fair and I Capture the Castle.)

OK, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights was the worst possible choice of Hollywood debuts, and Rory O’Shea Was Here is so terrible it completely failed to open in Seattle. But soon the awesome Romola Garai will be putting herself to appropriately awesome use:


… in Francois Ozon’s English-language Angel: Elizabeth Taylor, high camp! Eeeeee!

And Joe Wright’s Atonement (an adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel), along with Keira Knightley, Brenda Blethyn, James McAvoy, Vanessa Redgrave, etc. Ye gods!

Romola Garai is awesome. Soon you will agree.

Elizabeth Taylor the author isn't "Liz" Taylor the mega-uber-super movie star.

I am a person who paid money to watch Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights in a movie theater. "Watch how they FEEL the music." Caliente!
