Tilda Swinton, I Am Love



Tilda Swinton--Oscar-winning actress, fashion icon, artist, film festival founder and producer--heats up summer movie-going with two definitive roles. I Am Love presents Scotland's elegant redhead as the Russian-born wife of a wealthy Milanese industrialist whose carefully ordered world is thrown into disarray when she dines on a scrumptious meal of prawns. "It's 'prawn-ography,'" Swinton jokes of the dish that prompts this proper matriarch to run off with a much younger cook whose prawns captivated her. Then comes the 2010 re-release of Sally Potter's 1993 Orlando, Swinton's first international hit, in which she embodies the title character Virginia Woolf's seminal novel of a literarily-inclined youth who, over the course of several centuries, transforms from male to female (24 minutes).
