Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most recognized actresses of today. On September 27, 1972 she came into the world with a great career ahead of her. Not only is she an actress, but she is a blogger and businesswoman. For her birthday, I decided to do the 2003 movie Sylvia in which she portrays the title character, the author, Sylvia Plath.
Following the life of Sylvia Plath from her birth in Boston 1932 with her talented writing we learn about the personal life of the doomed author. At a young age, she loses her father dealing with the tragedy she turns to writing as a way to comfort her. The movie moves forward to the year 1950 where she is a star student at Smith College. Despite her popularity, she ends up attempting suicide in her junior year. When this attempt does not work, she finds herself at Cambridge University in Great Britain on a scholarship. There she meets author Ted Hughes who falls in love with her. Soon the two embark on a love affair that is leads to marriage. However, this marriage becomes doomed as Ted is unfaithful to Sylvia, who’s writing is growing in popularity. As life goes on writing and children bring Sylvia happiness. Sadly, Sylvia when Ted officially packs up and leaves her she is devastated leading to her suicide at the age of thirty.
Gwyneth Paltrow was able to tell Sylvia Plath’s tale like no other before her. To be honest, I can’t imagine any other actress bringing the author to life. On September 27, 1972, Gwyneth Paltrow was born with a life ahead of her inspiring many others to do great things.
