N.Y. Times Ed Leibowitz asks if it’s “better to mimic or transcend” famous figures you’re playing in a movie? Uhmm…the best way is try and do both, no? All I know is, any piece using a photo of Kirsten Dunst as Marie-Antoinette (as she appears in Sofia Coppola‘s film) is an automatic turn-off. It doesn’t open until 10.20, but Marie-Antoinette is already fixed in people’s heads as this year’s Memoirs of a Geisha…if that. It may do some business with young women who aren’t that deep, and it’ll probably pick up some tech nomninations (costumes, production, design, makeup).
