Fearless females: day #22

If a famous director wanted to make a movie about one of your female ancestors who would it be? What actress would you cast in the role and why?

I'd want a director who would make a good, truthful film. So, I would probably go with Steven Spielberg. As for actresses, there is only one actress who I would cast to play my great grandmother Maude Ethel Barnett, and that would be Jessica Tandy. When she played Mrs. Threadgoode on Fried Green Tomatoes, it was almost like seeing my great grandma on the television. To portray her as a young woman, I would pick Kate Winslet. When Kate was in Titanic, I could just imagine that is what my great grandma would have been like if she hadn't been poor.
