Lou Lumenick has the info on Natasha Richardson’s last, apparently dismal film, an Emma Roberts vehicle. (Young Roberts is, I think, going to be a big star. Check her out in the upcoming “Lymelife,” her first grown-up role….she even does an underwear scene and smokes pot.)
I saw the beautiful and talented Richardson on stage twice, in “Closer,” in which she played the part later done by Emma’s aunt Julia in the movie, and in “Cabaret,” and she gave a knockout performance in both. She never became a big movie star, but it wasn’t for lack of looks or ability. The acting world is substantially poorer for having lost her.
