  1. Isabella Rosselini reminds us of her magnetic mother Ingrid Begman. The love affair between Ingrid and Roberto Rosselini was also not a conventional one; it was considered scandalous.

    Now, Isabella plays in Vita and Viginia the role of Vita's "stern and disapproving" mother (I've looked it up).

    1. Yes, she is now at that age when she will probably only play mothers.

  2. You had me at "lesbiopic," LOL! I am very much looking forward to this movie. I've long been fascinated by the Bloomsbury Group and, of course, by Virginia Woolf. The current thinking about her is that she was not really heterosexual, bisexual or lesbian, but more asexual. In addition to her mental illness, she'd also been sexually abused as a girl which can leave lifetime scars.

    1. Wasn't it so very smart of me to come up with lesbiopic? ;) Did you watch Life in Squares mini series a few years ago?

  4. I don't think it looks terrible. It's not one I'm going to rush to see, but I wouldn't mind having it tucked away for rainy day boredom busting.
