"Burial Rites" the movie

Post by annis » Wed October 9th, 2013, 2:49 am

Yes! Jennifer Lawrence has been chosen to play the lead role of Agnes in the adaptataion of Hannah Kent's wonderfully evocative novel, set in 19th century Iceland.

Lawrence will be perfect as the enigmatic, compelling Agnes, who captures our sympathy despite any doubts we might have about her. And of course, it would be hard to go wrong with Iceland's magnificent scenery as a background!
