Today Australia greeted their new Prime Minister Julia Gillard. In a striking entrance to power, she challenged the current leader Kevin Rudd who stepped aside in a matter of hours. She is the country's first female Prime Minister. I don't exactly want to discuss politics on my blog but lets just say she was met with very mixed receptions. It will be interesting to see what changes this shall bring about!
Power and vanity is no doubt an excellent motivator and when that dangerous combination titled The Devil's Advocate involves a splash of Al Pacino, it couldn't get anymore fine if you tried! This husky voiced star is magic onscreen and a dear favourite of mine. Though not my favourite Pacino movie (I found it much too drawn out and wishy washy in terms of flow), he is the flame of the film, despite Keanu Reeves persistently steely gazes.
