Sounds interesting - wonder if Rachel Weisz will be playing her in the film or one of the girls? Very flattering if playing her!

Do you honestly think that Rachel Weisz would agree to play just one of the girls? I can't believe you said that.:ohmy:Meanwhile, please don't ask what UN employees get up to in Addis Ababa and Nairobi.:(

Just to lower the tone of the conversation, here is a genuine female basket case...one for the boys.

Yes I know this is hardly the place for it, but I didn't really want to start a new thread.

But 'one of the girls' could still be a major character couldn't they?

That article is a year old...the film was released two years ago... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0896872/

And Rachel Weisz did play Kathryn Bolkovac.

Yes, the Telegraph article was printed in February 2012 so not sure why it got on to Dean's radar. Mind you, if he genuinely thinks that a 28yo former Victoria Secrets model looks 45 then maybe he needs to visit Specsavers.

As you were............ I didn't notice the 'age' of the article (and I cannot say I have heard about the film being released - must have missed it). Forget it.

BUT........ please do not tell me that woman looks 28......... :ohmy:

Thanks for sharing it. Had never heard of the story, the woman or the film. Disgustingly fascinating read and I will continue to dig.
