I was having a little bit of trouble with the second question, which was: “Eleven of Kate’s films were based on books (not counting plays). List below the names of the novels and authors as well as the films they were based on.”
So, I decided to replace the above question with: “How many times does Kate sing (not just play the piano) in Sense And Sensibility?”
Anyway, the contest will run through December 15. So send in your answers as soon as possible (don’t forget to include your name, country and e-mail address).
Winner will get:
– 1 Finding Neverland DVD widescreen edition (region 1)
– 1 Dark Season DVD fullscreen edition (region 2)
Winner will be announced on December 16.
Clues: You can find all answers to the questions by browsing through the entire site. ;)
There’s a telling moment in Little Children when Kate Winslet’s character Sarah Pierce, trapped in a loveless marriage and enmeshed in a messy affair, relates to Madame Bovary during a book club meeting with other stay-at-home moms.
“She can either choose a life of misery or struggle against it,” says Sarah. “She chooses to struggle. She fails in the end, but there’s something beautiful and even heroic in the struggle.”
Winslet’s affinity for struggling, questing characters who refuse to play by society’s rules began with her first feature, Heavenly Creatures, in which she played a murderous fantasist, and continues with her latest, the recently wrapped Revolutionary Road, in which her frustrated suburban housewife suffers from an ennui so acute that quixotic escape is the only option.
As well as being a five-time Oscar nominee, Kate Winslet is also a working mother with many of the everyday worries we all recognize.
And she has a refreshingly down-to-earth take on her image â€“ in fact, she’s on a crusade to make women everywhere feel better about their bodies, beginning with her six-year-old daughter
Kate Winslet, firmly established as the leading British screen actress of her generation thanks to five Oscar nominations and a string of film successes, has always striven to retain the image of a down-to-earth working mother, with day-to-day concerns no different from the rest of us.
Life with her director husband of four years, Sam Mendes, and her children Mia, six (by her first husband) and Joe, three, may seem impossibly glamorous, and their homes â€“ a New York apartment and a Cotswold manor house â€“ are certainly a world away from the terraced house in Reading where she grew up.
I have added two of the rarest finds to the audio files. One is of Kate narrating chapters 1 to 21 of “Sense And Sensibility” by Jane Austen and the other one is of her narrating the first part of “The Enchanted Wood” by Enid Blyton. I didn’t add the whole books because they are extremely rare and I want them to stay this way, but I’d also like to share a part of them with you, so here they are…
Kate Winslet will be honored with the British Academy of Film and Television/Los Angeles’ Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year at the 2007 BAFTA/LA Cunard Britannia Awards on Nov. 1 at the Century Plaza Hotel.
Director Martin Campbell will receive the John Schlesinger Brittania Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing, while New Line Cinema’s co-chairmen and co-CEOs Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne will receive the Cunard Britannia Award for Lifetime Contributions to International Film.
