Seventeen year old Q'Orianka Kilcher has the potential to be a successful person in life. Not necessarily in the motion picture business, but in life.
Like many people, I missed her portrayal as Pocahontas in Terrence Malick's "The New World." As a theatrical release, "The New World" was a disappointment. However the extended version of the DVD release has grown in reputation. Q'Orianka Kilcher captured the innocence of Pocahontas.
Q'Orianka Kilcher gave a charming speech about social and environmental responsibility. Unlike most leading ladies from her age group, Q'Orianka Kilcher felt a responsibility for making a positive impact given her celebrity status.
Time will tell.
However, it was encouraging to watch Q'Orianka Kilcher double check and triple check her script and teleprompter. If she remains as diligent, her success will be assured.
