Kate Winslet is hoping to persuade Dame Judi Dench to
play the role of her mother in the film adaptation of Emile Zola's story,
Therese Raquin. "We sent her the script last week and we're waiting to
hear back. She'd be just perfect for the part," says the actress, who is
executive producing as well as starring in the film.Winslet, who has just
finished making Quills, is also hoping that Ralph Fiennes will take the
lead male role in.
