Nat talks Eve

By August 27, 2008Nat-news

Briefly. VERY briefly.

A film which sees Natalie Portman make her directorial debut is also being screened during the festival.

Eve includes veteran actress Lauren Bacall in the cast.

The movie concerns a young woman named Kate, who visits her grandma Lola for dinner, and is surprised to find her grandma is on a date with a man named Joe.

Portman, who was on the jury at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and is a Harvard University graduate, said in her director’s statement: “I’ve always had a fascination with the older generation, particularly those who are not at ease with the ageing process.”

Movies about getting old scare the hell out of me. The Savages, Away From Her and About Schmidt played like horror movies for me.
