And finally, Pfeiffer The Face tells us that period romance Chéri, a reteaming of Dangerous Liaisons' director, writer and star will compete at Berlinale next month where none other than Tilda Swinton is presiding over the Jury. So in a way the Alien Goddess of 00s Tilda gets to decide whether Ice Goddess of the 80s/90s Michelle Pfeiffer takes home a Best Actress there. Hmmm.
I've received this news from abundant sources / readers over the past two days all of whom are making it very very difficult for me. See, I'm actually trying desperately NOT to post about Chéri every day... if you're curious click on the Chéri label below for previous articles. I can't go there weekly else the blog's title must change to Waiting For Pfeiffer's New Costume Drama to Open Blog. Just so you know that that unwieldy title is more or less accurate here are pointless brief videos of Pfeiffer on the set that you should charitably pretend I haven't watched hundreds of times already.
