all things binoche

juliette binoche has a sister and her sister is an actress and film maker who has recently done a documentary on her sister juliette binoche. it's actually quite beautiful, and of course juliette binoche is her stunning talented self as always. jb is doing a world tour showing not only the documentary film, but she is a poet, dancer and painter as well. rather, it is more accurate to say that she writes poems, dances and paints. they are not her strongest talents, but ability she definitely has as was showcased in a viewing of the film and an interview this evening with charlie rose whom i adore even more.

it was a pleasure to sit and watch the binoche sisters in an interview with charlie rose hosted by the french institute here in nyc. should you run across the documentary, dance performance, poetry, picture book, or art exhibit that is all on view and tour now, it is definitely worth a visit.

i was intrigued and impressed by the multi-talent of juliette b, as well as inspired by her effort, work, and creativity. at 44 she asks the question, who says a woman can't dance at 44? brilliant question. it is incredibly true and a reminder for us ladies of all ages not to allow ourselves or our lives to be scripted for us. let's not let others impose their will on us. i appreciate binoche sharing and living these all important lessons...
