Who's That Girl: Filming has begun in London on The Girl In The Café, a love story by screenwriter Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings and a Funeral") for HBO Films and BBC ONE. Directed by David Yates ("State of Play," "Sex Traffic" and the upcoming fifth installment of the Harry Potter film series), the film stars Bill Nighy ("Love Actually," "State of Play") and Kelly Macdonald - seen in the photo above ("Finding Neverland," "Gosford Park"), as well as Ken Stott ("King Arthur," "Sleep When I'm Dead"), Anton Lesser ("Imagining Argentina," "Charlotte Gray") and Corin Redgrave ("Four Weddings and a Funeral," "In the Name of the Father"). The film followes the story of hard-working, shy civil servant Lawrence (Bill Nighy) and his life-changing relationship with the mysterious girl (Kelly Macdonald) he meets in a café opposite Downing Street. The film will be shown on HBO this summer, and on BBC ONE as part of the BBC's programs dedicated to celebrating Africa. This coincides with the U.K.'s Presidency of the G8 in 2005 and the real G8 Summit being held At Gleneagles, Scotland, in July. It is hoped that The Girl In The Café will be released worldwide on the same date. For information on Make Poverty History, see www.makepovertyhistory.org.
