Kristen Scott Thomas is a British actress who came to international fame in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "The English Patient." She's one of the very few actresses who has made a career for herself, if not reinvented herself as a French movie star. She complained that Hollywood roles for women dry up after the age of forty but in France, a woman's life is only beginning. In Catherine Corsini's "Leaving" she plays the wife of an upper class business man. She falls for the Spanish handyman with tragic concequences.
Thomas' peformance as a women reignited by love is mesmerising.
