I first noticed her in that 1998 movie, ELIZABETH. She conquered me! I couldn't stand THE GOOD GERMAN, a movie she was in with George Clooney. It's an adaptation from a book. After trying to watch it three times with the same result...me drooling on my pillow, I quit.
She was in another movie, CHARLOTTE GRAY, which was a book first with Sebastian Faulks. Now, that one is interesting. I had read the book first and got into the movie. Still, I like her best in her Elizabeth role.
She is great at playing Hepburn. They said she was in THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, but I don't remember her. I guess I should watch that movie again and see where she is.
