Keira still shadowing Audrey

2 Comments 19 May 2011

I just happened to hear about this by accident, but apparently Keira Knightley has been performing in a West End production of The Children’s Hour – taking on Audrey Hepburn’s old role of Karen Wright. The show opened around the end of January and I’m not sure how much longer it will be around, but Keira has been getting mixed reviews. Mainly upbeat, though the Daily Mail says there’s still room for improvement.

You may remember that Keira was in serious talks to star in a film remake of My Fair Lady before it fell through, and that the remake is still in development. This is twice now that Keira has wanted to recreate an Audrey Hepburn film role, and her first time actually doing it. Any thoughts on her choices in this regard?

There’s a new review up on The Fabulous Audrey Hepburn for The Children’s Hour, for those of you who need or like reviews. And with all the other reviews on the site, if you have seen the film or read the book, please feel free to leave your own review! I know people like hearing from other fans as to what they like and don’t like, and you really do help out. Go here for the review.

Edit: The day after I wrote this review, another one comes from AfterEllen.com! The review is a very good one, written by and for people who deal in real life with what Karen and Martha went through in The Children’s Hour. While the review does contain a couple of smaller spoilers, I would definitely recommend reading it, and I think it says a lot for the film when a reader says that it’s still one of the best gay/lesbian films around.
