What I Love Right Now

Kate Winslet in Romance & Cigarettes
(on DVD now)

In this offbeat and underrated quasi-musical from writer/director John Turturro and executive producers Joel and Ethan Coen, the 5-time Oscar nominee plays a buxom, crass, sex-crazed, Scottish chanteuse, and singlehandedly steals the whole movie. It's a sinful joy to watch. The role and the performance are prime examples of how incredibly fun it must be to act professionally, especially when you're as versatile and gifted as Ms. Winslet. PS: She's never been hotter, and she's got the fiery, crimson locks to prove it. See for yourself in this smokin' clip:
