I watched an exquisite movie last night, part of the Mill Valley Film Festival, called Venus. It’s a British film, starring the still-gorgeous Peter O’Toole as an old man, a venerable ACtor, who falls in love (in a most stylish, tasteful & elegant way) with a slightly trashy 16 year old girl from the north of England.

The thing about this movie, which started out making me laugh and later choked me with tears, is that O’Toole, by looking at this brash young girl with eyes of beauty, makes her truly beautiful.

Beautiful film, fundamental truth.
