TRIBUTE CONVERSATION | MVFF AWARD
Kate Winslet was still a teenager when she blazed across screens as an adolescent killer in Peter Jackson’s 1950s-set true crime drama Heavenly Creatures in 1994, establishing herself as a formidable talent to watch. A visage that could grace a vintage cameo made her a natural for period roles: at home in Jane Austen’s world in Sense and Sensibility, rising to international stardom in Titanic, playing an 18th-century laundress in Quills, and winning an Emmy® for her portrayal of a Great Depression-era mother in Mildred Pierce. But Winslet’s tremendous range expands far beyond costume pieces, as she has showcased vibrant, of-the-moment women in such films as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Little Children, Contagion, and Steve Jobs. Nominated for seven Oscars®, Winslet won for The Reader in 2009. She is back in period form as a 19th-century fossil hunter in AMMONITE, which plays MVFF Oct. 11 at the Drive-In. Join us as we pay tribute to this chameleon of the silver screen and engage her in conversation on her brilliant career.
In conversation with Zoë Elton.
