All This Useless Beauty


On this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie, I’m joined by Canadian acting legend Jennifer Dale, who’s been in everything from Ticket to Heaven and Of Unknown Origin to last year’s Clara and Robbery, and co-wrote and stars in Shelagh Carter’s new drama Into Invisible Light, in theatres this week.


Jennifer’s choice: Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love, the director’s 2009 breakout melodrama, steeped in Sirk and Visconti, starring Tilda Swinton as the Russian-born wife of an industrialist who finds herself irresistibly drawn to a friend of their son’s. Usually, when actors pick a movie with grand emotional stakes they tend to drill down on the performances, but that didn’t happen this time — and the conversation is all the richer for it, I think.
