Lindsay Lohan will star in "The Best Time of Our Lives" as a mother who is also a famed silent-film sex symbol.
Getting more mature in her film roles, Lindsay Lohan has signed deal to have a starring part as a mother in "The Best Time of Our Lives1", a big screen feature revolving around Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Here the starlet will portray a famed but ultimately tragic silent-film sex symbol named Clara Bow whose success couldn't conceal her childhood wounds.
Together with Keira Knightley, Lohan will come under the direction of British filmmaker John Mayburry who sets to helm the project based on script written by Knightley's mother Sharman Macdonald. The story itself centers on complex relationship among Thomas, his wife Caitlin, his childhood friend Vera Phillips, and her eventual husband William Killick.
Praising the picture as "a beautiful and amazing movie", Lohan has expressed her excitement upon working together with Knightley whose character has an enigmatic relationship with hers. "[Keira] is older than me, but she kind of has a mysterious relationship with my lover," so she revealed. "And then there's somewhat of a lesbian undertone."
