I (heart) Tilda

Tilda Swinton is phenomenal. I can’t see Young Adam because it’s not opening in Boston, but here’s a fantastic interview with her on (via Hugh). She is a goddess:

Were you intimidated by the nudity in Young Adam? Most American actresses, at comparable points in their careers, would avoid it.
I don’t quite understand that. The short answer is no. I mean, that’s what the film is all about. It’s not a thing that I have a qualm about. I made The War Zone when I had just given birth to twins, and my post-partum frame was very much on display there. There’s nothing I’m particularly keen to hide about my humanity. Let’s put it that way.

    Dunno how cheap the Gramercy is… it’s not too bad, though. A good cheapo is The Gershwin in Flatiron district… or The Larchmont on West 11th Street.
