Stars Can Be Anywhere


This is a clip of Jane Horrocks who was nominated for a Golden Globe among many other awards, excluding the Oscar (grr) for her role as Little Voice in the 1998 film of the same name.

In this clip, she takes on the voice and characteristics of some of the old greats Shirley Bassey, Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland. What is inspiring about this scene, however, is that Little Voice, nicknamed LV in the film, seems to become the person she has always been in ‘finding’ her gentle-natured father whom she lost at a very young age, in the crowd. When she sees him, she is a phoenix risen from the ashes, whose flame burns brighter with each song she sings. When her father died, she was left alone with a rude, lascivious, overbearing mother and her most cherished possession, her father’s records.

What we understood from this was that even if we are kept down by others, sometimes all we need is a little motivation to find our own voice.
