Alone in Berlin by Vincent Perez (!) starring Emma Thompson, Brendan Gleeson, Daniel Bruhl

Mindy has said that Emma is her biggest writing & acting inspiration. I’m so so happy for her!!

As an aside, BJ starred with Thompson in Saving Mr. Banks and mentioned in old lists on li.st that he visited Emma last time he was in London because they’re friends now. I can only assume he helped facilitate his friendship with Emma to Mindy as well, knowing how much she means to Mindy. 

Atwell has reported that she was asked by the film company to lose weight
for her role as Julia Flyte. It was only when co-star Emma Thompson

(who will play Lady Marchmain) heard the news that things got resolved:

Says Atwell: “I went
round to Emma’s one night and she was getting very angry that I wasn’t
eating all the food she was giving me. I told her why and she hit the
roof.” The no-nonsense Thompson was so outraged that she called
the producers the next day and threatened to resign from the film if
they forced Atwell to lose weight. Faced with Thompson — a two-time
Oscar winner — on the warpath, Miramax Films swiftly relented.’ (x

Gosh, that part in Much Ado About Nothing when Beatrice and Benedick read each other’s secret love letters and admit their love is always so cute. But, like, too cute. 

That’s more like it. That’s the response I’d expect of two hyper-critical sarcastic dorks in love.

She was used to take off her clothes and put on a robe to be more comfortable. One day while we were shooting, we had to have a very surprised reaction, and we were doing the scene and she stood up and she flashed us! It would have been funny if it’d been just pajamas underneath, but she was topless. And she had actually cut out… She had made Mickey Mouse pasties, to cover her breasts. Every time now I see Mickey Mouse I think of breasts. And every time I see breasts I think of Mickey Mouse, and it is a problem, I’m telling you! - Jason Schwartzman
