She certainly keeps quiet about some of these things....

Keira recorded a short film in 2004 which formed part of a 90-minue movie called Stories of Lost Souls, a 'collage of six stories of lonely people in unexpected situations'. It was distributed by an Argentinian (!) company and premiered in November last year at the American Film Market. It has recently been shown at Cannes. Among other big-name stars in the movie were Josh Hartnett, Paul Bettany, Illeana Douglas, Cate Blanchett, James Gandolfini and Hugh Jackman.
At present there's no mention of a theatrical release, so it may do the round of the festivals, as did Pure, before it turns up on a movie channel like Sundance or FilmFour.
Keep 'em peeled for more info !

Keira's changing hairstyles are always good for dating things like this. It doesn't look like the long, dark King Arthur/Jacket look or the long blonde Pirates look. Seems to be more of the Love Actually period, which was September 2003-ish. That's assuming the poster pic is from the film, which I'd guess it would be.

I've now found three synopses:

- What defies expectations leads to the unpredictable...Six short stories of conquest, desperation and the will to overcome.
- Six stories of lonely souls in unexpected situations.
- Frantic individuals discover to what extremes they will go to resolve desperate circumstances.

Let's hope the Cannes exposure will result in a distribution deal. I don't think they'd have a shortage of interested companies with a cast like that :)

Wouldn't that be 2002? I'm quite sure Love Actually was shot before Pirates.

well i was under the impression they were shot kinda around the same time... maybe keira's scenes in la were shot during pre-prod of potc or so...

update:la was indeed shot after potc

Love Actually started shooting in spetember 2002 till about the end of november (i think), and was released in (november) 2003.

If you listen to Love Actually's comentary, you'll hear that either Richard Curtis or that bloke who played the rock star asked Keira what she was going to do next, to which she replied "Pirates of the Caribbean". They warned her that pirate movies are hardly ever a success etc... So I'd assume Love Actually was shot prior to PotC.

In other news, I really want to see Stories of Lost Souls, I wonder what kind of role she's got. Sneaky Keira, she's got all these projects that she just never talks about... It's all about the mysterious image :icon_bigg It's a nice surprise for sure :)

Awesome job on finding out about it, Paul :)

Stories of Lost Souls is not, alas, a new Keira performance but it still is to most people - it's a compilation of six unconnected short stories of which Keira's is the 2002 'New Year's Eve'.

And now for the good news - I was told about this tonight by someone from Wisconsin who picked up a copy of the movie on DVD - in his local Wal-Mart bargain bin for $5.50 !!! :icon_surp

It doesn't seem to be listed on any Internet store so how it came to be out on DVD is anyone's guess, but I'd go and have a rummage in Wal-Mart, you never know what you might find !

More info on New Year's Eve on my front page.

< trumpet fanfare >

I'm very happy to announce that New Year's Eve is now online at KeiraWeb. There's a page of 34 DVD captures and a two-part clip of Keira's scenes. She never moves from a seated position behind a table, but there's lots of close-ups for those who like such things :-)

This is one of those hidden Keira gems like Mindscape, Deflation and Gaijin that we had almost resigned ourselves to never being able to see. We must be thankful to whoever decided to include it on this obscure DVD compilation Stories of Lost Souls.

Personally I'm thankful to a complete stranger in Wisconsin who sent a copy to me 3,000 miles away free of charge as a thank you for KeiraWeb. Things like that make it all worth it sometimes :)

If it's not there anymore, it'll be difficult to track it down.
