Watch Gemma Ward’s big screen breakthrough

03 December 2008


The fashion world has gone film-tastic of recent. Not only is Tom Ford currently filming his directorial debut, Karl Lagerfeld's short film on Coco Chanel is set to air this week and on Friday Gemma Ward's second film since first trying her hand at acting a few years ago opens in the US. Black Balloon, a story of friendship and the difficulty of living with a relative with autism, sees Ward starring alongside Home and Away actor Rhys Wakefield and award winning actress Toni Colette. The film's already received 11 nominations at Australia's most prestigious award ceremony the AFI awards so perhaps Gemma's career will soon be catapulted from the runway to a permanent fixture on the big screen! Black Balloon is released int he US on thursday and there is not yet a planned date for release in the UK but for a sneak preview check out the trailer here.
