Naomie Harris, the stunningly beautiful English actress best known for her starring role in the zombie flick 28 Days Later and the last two Pirates of the Caribbean movies, was in New York last week to promote her new film, The First Grader and stopped by the office with the films producer Sam Feuer.
Not only did I get the chance to chat with Naomie about the typical girly things, but I was lucky enough to screen the movie, which is the touching story of Kimani Maruge, an 84 year-old Kenyan villager and ex Mau Mau freedom solider who fights for his right to go to school for the first time in order to get the education he could never afford. I found Naomie to be totally charming and the film truly inspiring.
The First Grader opens on May 13. Check out the trailer below.
