Darling is not a role model but a regular model, the Honeyglow girl with warm eyes and a calm smile, the rest of her bubbles with recklessness. She is too aimless to be someone to look up to, her ambition is ambition itself. Darling is Diana Scott. You can see how well her nickname fits in her first scene, she crosses a London road, swinging her handbag, careless and carefree and then she smiles and her face beams, radiates new light.
I recently watched Terrence Malick's latest, in film fan mode rather than professionally. The film has already set rivers of ink in motion, and it's a foolhardy venture to comment after just one viewing. I'm looking forward to the DVD already.
About Film
HuffPost UK Entertainment's Film page keeps on top of all the latest news in the movie industry – from Hollywood to Bollywood to Pinewood, from blockbuster franchises the size of Twilight and The Hobbit, to that obscure documentary with subtitles. We've been at red carpet ringside for the premiere of Harry Potter's final outing, and we've argued with James Cameron about whether Woody Allen should be making films in 3D just because it worked for Titanic. Whether you're an unashamedly nerdy student of the sequel, or just like looking at the dresses on Oscars night, we have something for everyone – including interviews with the hottest stars (yes, we asked Daniel Craig how he buffed up to play James Bond, and Mark Wahlberg told us how he knew who was going to win the Academy Awards), preview trailers, exclusive clips and video features of forthcoming films, competitions, and lots and lots of photos.
