Stunning Dakota–for sure.


Finally we’ll get to see Effie!!! (At least those in the UK)

From an article in “the guardian” about Emma Thompson.


“Now, finally, this spring has seen the fruition of an equally cherished long-term writing project – a plan to bring the story of John Ruskin and his ill-fated bride, Effie Gray, to the screen. Following a long battle for funding and a legal dispute, Thompson’s film, starring her husband, Greg Wise, alongside Dakota Fanning, has finally been screened privately at the Barbican in London and is set to be released in the spring.”

Effie was shot way back in the fall of 2011 when Dakota was still a puppy of 17.


From the Effie biography by Suzanne Fagence Cooper: “Her life reads like a novel, full of colour, sensation, despair and romance.”
Cooper, Suzanne Fagence (2011-06-21). Effie: The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, John Ruskin and John Everett Millais (p. 6). Macmillan. Kindle Edition.

BTW, Emma Thompson has a role in the movie as the colorful character, Lady Eastlake who befriended Effie. I can’t promise anything, but if this movie doesn’t work, it’s not because of a lack of a good story–which includes romance, beautiful scenery, and some art history too.


New Dakota interview: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/features/dakota-fanning-interview-how-to-grow-up-gracefully-9235611.html

The article mentioned a director saying that leaving little errors in movies because “people do that” is ok. I’ve seen these little errors plenty of times and I always lose immersion (“suspension of disbelief”) in the movie when it happens. Even though people make these little errors in real life, in the case of a movie, they stand out to me because they’re not integrated into the movie: they’re obviously completely pointless to the story. IMO, a director should always remove/reshoot the error scenes, and, especially, get rid of plot-holes. A serious plot-hole can really mess up a movie. A plot-hole can undercut emotional involvement in the subsequent action. This is in addition to the lose of immersion at the time one notices the plot-hole. If you find yourself noticing a blunder or plot-hole, that’s what I mean.


FYI, Dakota’s film “Every Secret Thing” will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC. The festival runs April 16-27. I’m hoping Dakota’s role will be meaty and challenging.
