Volatile issues: Anorexia, tabloid-friendly star
Whether or not the films twist ending for those who consider it such can be kept secret long enough for audiences to catch the film may be but one hurdle for this Oscar front-runner. Star Keira Knightley is a constant target of tabloid scrutiny, from her red-carpet body mass index to her penchant for nude photo shoots. The next few months may place her directly in the cross hairs for the dig-up-anything British press, and what they find could tarnish the seemingly impeccable credentials of this awards-friendly project.
