I was dismayed to hear of actress Natasha Richardson's passing. There is only one movie I vividly remember her appearing in (although she appeared in many). The reason it was memorable for me is because Richardson played a young woman dying of cancer. The character's acceptance of her fate was moving. And now, with her death, I can only hope that she died with peace in her heart.
The movie is one that is probably not well-known, Blow Dry. Ironically it is more of a comedy starring Natasha Richardson, Alan Rickman, and Rachel Griffiths! Its subject matter makes it even more forgettable--the British Hairdressing championship competition! Perhaps I will order it for the collection, but until then, you can celebrate Ms. Richardson's other roles by viewing these films from our collection [all DVD except noted]:
The Handmaid's Tale .
Nell. [VIDEO NEL]
The Parent Trap.
The White Countess (in this film Natasha is joined by her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and her aunt, Lynn Redgrave).
Sincerest condolences to Richardson's husband, Liam Neeson (Love, Actually [DVD LOV]), and her family.
