Here she dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, Park Lane:
If Park Lane is made into a movie, I'd love to see strong, almost dark characters. Gemma Arterton would be great as Grace, the maid new to the job and trying her best as she is forced to weave an ever thicker web of lies around her. Natalie Portman could portray beautifully the complexities of disillusioned debutante Beatrice as she comprises her principles and is drawn into the violent world of militant suffragettes. As for Michael, brooding and magnetic, James Purefoy would absolutely do the trick.Learn more about the book and author at Frances Osborne's website.
