Great list!
Maybe Nicole Kidman as Satine in Moulin Rouge?
And Kristen Stewart plays some kind of hooker in Welcome to the Rileys also.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Aug 15 18:03
Yeah, I was also going to suggest Nicole Kidman as Satine.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Aug 15 18:35
I recommend "The Babysitters" - http://www.listal.com/movie/the-babysitters. And how do you forget Nicole Kidman as Satine?!
