On Kate Winslet and Nudity; or the Importance of Being Naked
Like so many tropes before – period drama, war, disenfranchised peoples, and the physically afflicted – Kate Winslet’s nudity has become award season bait. I’m saying this with the utmost respect for a woman who basically commands her body like it’s her indentured servant. Has there ever been a woman so in touch with her physical self on film? Kate Winslet’s films have taught me many things: you should never marry Kate Winslet, women can be honestly portrayed as complicated and human, and when an actress removes her clothes, it can be inspiring.
