At Girlie Night, we’re obviously huge fans of strong, dynamic heroines. And I’m pretty sure that no one has ever been as elegantly badass as Cate Blanchett in ELIZABETH, which is why it’s the perfect film to continue our Afternoon Tea series. This movie is packed with the classiest actors in the biz, from Geoffrey Rush to Richard Attenborough, and Joseph Fiennes handsomely performs his swoon-inducing duty.

But of course, it’s really all about Cate Blanchett. She defies societal convention, fights against power-hungry noblemen, launches military battles and still manages to look completely gorgeous the entire time. At Afternoon Tea, we’ll crown her the queen of our hearts while sipping on tea as beautifully complex as the costumes and snacking on treats as delicious as the intrigue! (Sarah Pitre)

As April winds down and, with it, our tribute to car movies - I want to talk a little bit not just about the remaining films (and intimidating trilogy in its own right: Bullitt, Death Proof and Two-Lane Blacktop), but about the films that we weren’t able to program this time around.  If you haven’t seen Steve McQueen in Le Mans, you should do that.  Right now.  I mean it.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
