Her website, nelliesciutto.com, is still under construction, but hopefully she’ll let me know when it’s up and running so i can pass the info on to you guys. Should any professional stumble into The Bar None and want to reach her, leave me a comment below and i’ll shoot your contact info on to her, k?]
From the juiced-box and the soundtrack of Shutter Island: Dinah Washington with Max Richter – This Bitter Earth
Y’all know about the Silken Butterflies. “Silken Butterflies” is the appellation i coined for those talented women that fly across the silver screen, whose images are as fleeting as they are beautiful. One of my biggest pleasures in the Booze Revooze is uncovering these young starlettes, presenting them to you my patronizers in The Bar None and, when i catch a break, interviewing them.
Nellie Sciutto is exceptional in a couple ways to this rule. Sure, she’s beautiful and talented but her role in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island cannot be called fleeting and the fact that this is her fourth Scorsese project, in addition to a whole slew of other work, means this young lady is a star who shot passed “up and coming” ages ago.
So it was with great humility and gratitude that i accepted her first class, round-trip ticket from Yeman to St Tropez on the French Riveria, where i met her on her yacht to sip mojitos and talk about her fabulous career.
