Anyone else love actress Keira Knightley as much as me?
OK—sorry—wrong place, wrong time for that conversation.
She is starring in a new commercial about domestic violence that’s directed by Joe Wright, director of Knightley’s films Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. In the ad, Knightley is badly beaten by her boyfriend.
The powerful—and graphic—commercial, a campaign for the charity Women’s Aid, will run in movie theaters starting April 6. Let's hope that with star power attached to the campaign,it brings greater attention to domestic violence—a problem that's worsening with the economy.
