|In Maggie's Eyes, in progress|
The actress, her movies, her eyes fascinate me. Her eyes, the physical structure, the look of intelligence and worldliness fascinates. When she's on screen, she owns it. For a change of pace, I chose her face. She isn't a thirty minute knock off. Dame Maggie Smith is in the details.
Aside from the popular Downton Abbey Series and the Harry Potter films, she's made a few others I've enjoyed more than once. Maybe you have too?
Quartet. (Ellis and just watched this Sunday for the second time; we loved it again)
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel--another movie I've watched more than once.
Gosford Park (a story about the upstairs gentry and the downstairs servants--totally pulls me in to sit on the landing and see how it goes).
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Death on The Nile.(Agatha Christi murder mysteries are very Maggie).
A Room With A View
The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne
A Private Function
