Bleak House Update
Posted at 1:08 PM (PST) on Wednesday, December 8, 2004
Gillian shall be playing the role of Lady Dedlock.
Dickens' ninth novel was intended to illustrate the evils caused by long, drawn-out suits in the Courts of Chancery. Dickens had observed the inner workings of the courts as a reporter in his youth and observed that "The one great principle of the English law is to make business for itself". Bleak House is often considered Dickens' finest work although not his most popular. - David Perdue's Charles Dickens Home Page.

Gillian and Amanda Celebrate Indie Film Awards
1 DECEMBER 2004
Showcasing a newly svelte figure and blonde hairdo, Gillian Anderson led the red carpet roster of stars at the British Independent Film Awards in London on Tuesday.
The X-Files star, swathed in a halter-neck white satin gown, was beautifully backed in the glamour stakes by fellow actress Amanda Holden, who also had the flashbulbs blazing outside the Hammersmith Palais when she made her entrance in a romantic multi-coloured frock and orange pumps.
The big winner at the event was Mike Leigh's critically acclaimed movie Vera Drake, which centres on a back street abortionist in 1950s London. The movie swept the boards, scooping a total of six gongs � including best film and director - while stars Phil Davis and Imelda Staunton were awarded best actor and best actress respectively.
Bob Hoskins, the star of films including The Long Good Friday and Mona Lisa, took home the 2004 Richard Harris award for outstanding contribution by an actor to British film.
Also reigning triumphant were Korean film Oldboy which beat Fahrenheit 9/11 for the best foreign independent film prize, and Irishman John Crowley, who won the debut director award for Intermission.
