#TBT: Nell

Unknown 1994 was a great year for movies and an especially good  year for Jodie Foster.  For those who don't know, Jodie burst onto the scene as a child star in Maritn Scorsese's Taxi Driver making her a star.  However, it was her role as Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs that turned her into an international superstar.  These days, Foster uses her talent as a much sought after director and has helmed many episodes of the hit Netflix series, Orange is the New Black.

But, in 199r she starred in Nell portraying a beautiful young hermit woman with many secrets and racking up many nominations, including one for the Academy Award.

Take a look at Nell...

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of UBNRAdio.com, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
