That's fantastic! Thanks. I hadn't even seen that second video!

Yeah, isn't it? I just cursorily glanced at it, expecting a couple scenes with Swank, and whoa, Eccleston. His inter, however, is the shortest of the batch, and that's very not fair. Oh well, it's still great.

Mmm. Just lovely. You gotta love a man who can appreciate a strong, capable woman. ;)

It's so refereshing to see an actor like Christopher comment about women being the lead character in films.

Too often is the case in my opinion, that women are just the token of male heroic types that Christopher has turned the table on this stereotypical image.

Maybe it's the chance now for others for us to see other women who changed the course of history, such as Emily Pankhurst, Marie Curie and indeed another aviator pioneer Amy Johnson can be recreated in the film or television genre.

Well, Chiclit and I discussed, if you remember for example his comment on the film 'Climates' for BBC4 World Cinema Award (see transcript here) or indeed his thoughts on the new image of the Doctor's companion - you might suspect he's a feminist.

May I add "Elizabeth" and "Dina" to the theme? "Strumpet", too, in a way I think. I've just been spending some time in front of my DVD collection with a good friend next to me who today has made us re-watch "Dalek" instead of watching "Wolverine" that he's never seen before, and then asked about the next stage easily to access Eccleston movie - and I then realized I can't find your review list anymore... argh.
