I thought that deserved its own thread. Here is the video: http://www.vesti.ru/only_video.html?vid=585214 (at 14.00)
At the press conference last week http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5y4YswZcMzU, Julia was asked about the rumor that Steven Spielberg has offered her a role after seeing her Shinder's list program. Julia said that no one has offered her a role, but Spielberg sent her a letter in which he thanked her for her portrayal of the girl in the red coat in her program. She said she hasn't seen the latter herself - it was addressed to her, but people who were meant to pass the letter to Julia had kept it to themselves. Eteri said that they were asking to give them that letter. Eteri also said that for them, it was the highest praise possible, on a par with Olympic gold medal.February 21, 2014
I am writing to tell you how moved I was by you gold medal performance as the little girl in red and accompanied by John Williams' music from my film SCHINDLER'S LIST. You brought such dignity in your remembrance of the Holoucaust through your soulfully inspired routine. I have three sons and four daughters, and there was not a dry eye in our house in California as we watched you on television.
You are the best discovery of the Sochi Olympics and we will be watching you in PyeongChang in 2018. Hopefully someday my family will have the chance to meet you and your family. We would love that very much.
In good health,
