One of the qualities that makes her such a good actress is that you never feel as if she is acting. She completely commits to her role and the arc her character goes through and she takes us on that journey with her. The actress has garnered rave reviews, as well as 2 National Awards, been awarded the Padma Shri for her contribution to cinema and many other awards during her career so far and she is still going strong.
In celebration of her birthday today we thought we would shine the light on one of our favorite actresses.
Even more beautiful now

15 years ago today was a beautiful day for U2 fans: On October 30, 2000, their album “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” hit record store shelves. It was the U2’s 10th studio album and was largely considered a glorious return to form for the Irish band, following the mixed reception of their 1997 album, “Pop.” Among the successful singles on U2’s first album of the 2000s were “Elevation,” “Walk On” and “Beautiful Day.” Guitarist the Edge said of the album in the book “U2 by U2,” “‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’ was an album that acknowledged our own past, which we had never really done before…. I was playing the Gibson Explorer. This was really the sound of U2, the sound we had made our own and then abandoned as far back as ‘War.’” He also points out plenty that was fresh and new for the band with the album, »

As long as Hollywood exists, storytellers looking for a fresh twist will be combing the land in search of plot elements they can pluck out and shake vigorously until they compliantly fall into another genre. Homer did it. Shakespeare did it. Even the Bible did it. So it should come as no surprise to see Hollywood wants to adapt Louisa May Alcott’s novel “Little Women.” Deadline got the details on what The CW has planned. “Little Women” is described as a hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation of the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott, in which disparate half-sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined – all while trying not to kill each other in the process. At first blush, this seems like the natural evolution of parody mash-up craze that »

Now in theaters, “A Little Chaos” marks Alan Rickman’s second film as director; he also stars in the movie as Louis Xiv. His “Sense and Sensibility” love interest Kate Winslet stars as Sabine de Barra, a widow who falls for a fellow landscaper while they’re working on the King’s garden. At a recent public screening of the film, Rickman revealed several fun facts about himself and the making of the film.
Harry Potter put a hold on his film directing career.
Rickman made his movie directorial debut with “The Winter Guest,” starring Emma Thompson. But that was in 1997; why has it taken him so long to get back behind the camera? “Harry Potter got in the way,” said Rickman. “When I said yes to doing that in, I think 2000, there were only three books and I didn’t know if I’d be in the fourth.

It’s been nearly 18 years since Alan Rickman’s feature directorial debut, The Winter Guest, hit theaters, but now it’s finally time to catch his second go behind the lens, A Little Chaos. In 1682 King Louis Xiv (Rickman) commences a search for a landscape designer to build one of the main gardens at the Palace of Versailles. Even though Sabine De Barra’s (Kate Winslet) social status and forward-thinking techniques aren’t in line with the candidates one might expect André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts) to chose, he decides to embrace the “chaos” of her process and awards her the job. With A Little Chaos due for a limited release on June 26th, I got the chance to talk to Rickman about making the film. He stressed the importance of pre-production and having rehearsal time, he talked about what it’s like directing a scene that he’s acting in, »

Come Friday, Alan Rickman and Kate Winslet will hit the big screen together for the first time since Ang Lee's 1995 adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. Winslet leads Rickman's second directorial endeavor, A Little Chaos, as Sabine De Barra. It’s 1682 and King Louis Xiv (Rickman) is looking for a landscape designer to build a main garden at the Palace of Versailles. Even though the “chaos” of Sabine’s style isn’t in line with the techniques of the King’s most celebrated landscape artist, André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts), he gives her the job and she begins work on the outdoor ballroom, Rockwork Grove. I’ve got full interviews with Winslet and Rickman about making the movie coming soon, but first, find out what one thing they need to have in hand while filming and which on-set job besides acting they'd like to take on.

It’s been 20 years since Kate Winslet made her breakthrough performance opposite Alan Rickman in “Sense and Sensibility.” The two prolific actors are back together for another period drama, but forgo Jane Austen for 17th century France in Focus World’s “A Little Chaos.”
“It was absolutely wonderful to reunite with him after such a long time,” Winslet, 39, told Variety at the film’s New York premiere on Wednesday at the Museum of Modern Art hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company. “I’ve grown quite a lot as a person and hopefully as an actor since [we were last together on screen].
In the film, Rickman, who directed and co-wrote the movie’s screenplay, plays King Louis Xiv and Winslet stars as a gardener chosen to build one of the main gardens at the King’s new palace at Versailles.
“To be able to bring a level of collaboration into this experience was quite different. I »

Nineteen classic British films, rarely seen on the big screen, will feature in the festival from August 6-19 at the Hayden Orpheum Cremorne, Melbourne's Cinema Nova and the Windsor in Perth.

Sonny Liew, artist on the upcoming Dr. Fate series written by Paul Levitz for DC Comics, has published a graphic novel overseas that’s gotten a bit of political attention in his home country of Singapore…
A hot-off-the-press graphic novel seems to be in hot water, with the National Arts Council (Nac) revoking its $8,000 publication grant because of the “sensitive content”.
The Art Of Charlie Chan Hock Chye by award-winning comics artist Sonny Liew tells the story of a Singaporean artist who represents 60-odd years of local history through his satirical comics.
Founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew and his political rival Lim Chin Siong appear in the 340-page book in cartoon form.
The 1987 Operation Spectrum, when 16 people were detained allegedly over a Marxist conspiracy to overthrow the Government, is turned into a plot to replace all music in Singapore with the melodies of American singer Richard Marx.
