#TBT Being Julia

beingjulia Being a Broadway baby, I couldn't wait to see this film for two reasons...Theatre and Annette Bening!

Set in the world of the late 1930's London stage, reigning diva Julia Lambert's success and fame grows very suddenly. She falls head over heels for a young American and begins a passionate May - December affair. Once she realizes her boy-toy  is just a young social climber whose real passion is ambitious young starlet Avice Crichton, Julia begins to plot a delightful revenge.

Bening garnered an Oscar nomination for her stellar performance...Click on the clip below and see why as we take a look back at Being Julia...

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!!!
