my brangelia.Kate Winslett Sam Mendes
my favorite thespian and one of my beloved auteur is calling it quit. yes it is kate winslet and sam mendes. i dont think kate winslet needs an introduction. as an actress, she evokes such pure and powerful emotions that speak a thousand words even with one glance. and thats what makes a great actress. i would rank her along the lines of meryl streep, hands down. her performances in the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, little children, the reader, and revolutionary road have wholly solidified her as the most prominent and adaptable actress.
as for her husband, his reputation stands just as strong against hers. sam mendes has directed some of the greatest films out to date. he made his first film debut with american beauty back in 1999 which won best picture and best director. after several films, he brought another tour-de-force film which is one of my all time favorites, revolutionary road.
and to hear that one of hollywood's most respected couple splitting up is completely heartbreaking. but as with life, there are ups and downs, twists and turns. and no matter how hard you try to navigate your own life, its sometimes slips out of your hands, no matter how hard you try to savor it. and like i always say, true romances never have happy endings.
