The 43rd Mill Valley Film Festival (Oct 8-18, 2020) presents Kate Winslet in conversation with Zoë Elton.
Kate Winslet was still a teenager when she blazed across screens as an adolescent killer in Peter Jackson's 1950s-set true crime drama 'Heavenly Creatures' in 1994, establishing herself as a formidable talent to watch. A visage that could grace a vintage cameo made her a natural for period roles: at home in Jane Austen's world in 'Sense and Sensibility', rising to international stardom in 'Titanic', playing an 18th-century laundress in 'Quills', and winning an Emmy® for her portrayal of a Great Depression-era mother in 'Mildred Pierce'. But Winslet's tremendous range expands far beyond costume pieces, as she has showcased vibrant, of-the-moment women in such films as 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind', 'Little Children', 'Contagion', and 'Steve Jobs'. Nominated for seven Oscars®, Winslet won for 'The Reader' in 2009. She is back in period form as a 19th-century fossil hunter in 'Ammonite', which played MVFF Oct. 11 at the Drive-In. Join us as we pay tribute to this chameleon of the silver screen and engage her in conversation on her brilliant career.
