The Best Thing About Robin Hood (2010)

The best thing about Robin Hood is that it casts Léa Seydoux as Isabella of Angoulême.

We first see Isabella in bed with King John (Oscar Isaac), at which point I paid no attention to King John. (Not the best shot of her in this scene.)

Later when she's queen, she's relegated to extreme long shots.

Much better!

Born in France on July 1, 1985, Léa has appeared in a number of French films. In 2009she appeared in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds as Charlotte LaPadite.

I hope to see her in upcoming films!

That's her? Damn!

During the movie, I kept asking myself where I had seen her before.

Jason Bellamy said...

Rats! I knew I recognized her, but I didn't know from what. I of course spotted "her father."

Hokahey said...

Whoa! And I missed that one! Where was Denis Menochet in Robin Hood?

Jason Bellamy said...

He's in there at least twice. My memory is fading, but I think the first French guy we see ... he's sitting on the ground and someone comes up and gives him an order and he gets up and says something. Perhaps he's an envoy between Mark Strong's Godfrey and the French dude. Regardless, he shows up later, too.

Merde! I missed him.
