I’m not mad at the idea of Kate Winslet and Idris Elba doing a movie together. I am mad that they did THIS movie together, The Mountain Between Us. It could have been a lovely British romance between two 40-something actors. Instead we get a survival story of a plane crash with Idris and Kate playing the sole survivors. The TIFF premiere of TMBU was last night, and these are some photos from the premiere. Kate Winslet wore a white-and-black Badgley Mischka which… looks like everything else she’s been wearing the past few years. I don’t mind that Kate knows what silhouettes look best on her figure, but… I don’t know. It does get boring. Sofia Vergara is the same – all of her gowns sort of blend together. Here’s the trailer for TMBU:
I hate these kinds of survival movies, but here’s what’s really funny to me: Kate is playing a journalist and Idris is playing a doctor. Why is she the one “explaining” to him how long they could survive? I’m really asking.
Meanwhile, the bigger story from the TIFF premiere might be that Idris has a new girlfriend and they made their couple-debut at the premiere. Her name is Sabrina Dhowre and she’s 29 years old. She’s a former beauty queen, the 2014 Miss Vancouver. She’s gorgeous. She’s so pretty, in fact, that I’m actually sort of depressed at the moment. Like, I understand why Idris Elba didn’t come to Virginia to find me and take me to his premiere, but it’s still devastating to see him with his new girlfriend.
