It’s not because I have a serious soft spot for Juliette that I don’t recognise that Nadia is the real hero of their relationship. Maybe it’s unhealthy, or co-dependent, or just very lesbian, but Juliette needs Nadia. In fact, most characters in French Kissing need Nadia. She’s not free of mistakes—no one is—but she’s not afraid to speak her mind and, e.g., set Margot straight. (I won’t go into detail to avoid spoilers.)
Who better to portray such a wise, warm, righteous woman with a hidden dominant streak than Saul’s wife? I know, it’s a disgrace that I didn’t even know who Sarita Choudhury was before I swooned every time she got a few seconds of screen time on Homeland (but I’ll definitely be watching Kama Sutra this week!)
You can’t exactly tell by looking at her, but we all know what she’s thinking (about doing to Juliette…)
Oh Nadia, I, too, have tried to give up wine numerous times and have never once succeeded.
So, now that I’ve revealed both ‘my’ Juliette and Nadia, how do you feel about their last sex scene in Episode Six? 😉
