Pfeiffer Working Through Her Birthday

I remain elated and shocked that Stephen Frear's adaptation of Cheri (see previous post for more on the project) is actually happening. But it is. Michelle Pfeiffer hasn't appeared in a prestige drama with a major director since Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence (1993). If the results are similarly strong, we shall all be blessed.

<---I'm not sure if this is the first we've seen of La Pfeiff on set (one previous paparrazi pic was released but it doesn't look a thing like her to me) but better photos will surface. The Face has the short video in which the paparazzi shout "happy birthday" and as Pfeiffer ducks into her car you can hear her unmistakable American nasal responding with a "thank you!". You're welcome, Michelle.

I'm not sure who the costume designer is (no one is credited yet on IMDB) but this is probably lovelier up close when you can see detailing. The film costars Rupert Friend, Oscar winner Kathy Bates and rising newcomer Felicity Jones (Brideshead Revisited).

"Who is He Niobe" (that's a cute username that only true Pfeiffer pfanatics will get a big kick out of) has posted a lovely video on YouTube celebrating Michelle's entire career. It's chronological so you can watch her age as it goes. Not that she ages in the way we mere mortals do.
