Evelyn, starring Pierce Brosnan as an Irishman fighting to get his kids out of an orphanage, was a great pleasure to work on. It was directed by Bruce Beresford, the great Aussie director of Driving Miss Daisy, Tender Mercies and many other great films.
Bruce and I are curently collaborating on a film about the rags to riches story of Kathleen Ferrier, the working class girl who dreamed of being an opera singer whilst working as a telephonist for ten years.
She had her first opera lesson when she was thirty, and everyone said she was a fantasist. Four years later she was the most famous Diva on the planet.
The Diva Next Door will go into production early next year.
