Dorothy Perpetua Wells is a British actress and writer. She co-wrote and starred in the Sky Living series Doll & Em.
It's a double-whammy on our latest episode of Soundtracking, as we bring you two extremely talented ladies charting very different courses in the world of cinema. First up is Hildur Gudnadottir. Well known to fans of this podcast - on which she has featured by proxy many, many times - Hildur has gained broader and much deserved recognition for her work on Joker - Todd Phillips's origin story about the eponymous super-villain that has proved hugely popular among movie fans and critics alike. If you haven't seen it yet, Joaquin Phoenix's performance is astonishing, as is Hildur's suitably disturbing score. Then we have Dolly Wells, a much-loved British comedy actor who has just made her directorial debut with Good Posture. She and I have more of a chat about her career in television and film than the usual focus on music, but she's an utter delight, so we really wanted to share it anyway.
Emily Mortimer, Dolly Wells and Grace Van Patten, the stars ofGood Posture join host Robin Milling at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. The film features first time director Wells who also wrote the screenplay about a young girl (Van Patten) who moves in with family friend and famed author (Mortimer), after her widower father moves to Paris with his young girlfriend.  It was a labor of friendship and love as Wells and Mortimer are lifelong friends. They talk about that familial connection, easily bringing Van Patten into their inner circle. They've extended those familial ties even further among their children and siblings.  The ladies of Good Posture tell Robin what it was like working together on the film which was shot in Brooklyn, sharing behind-the-scene stories from the set. They reveal a few more gems that only good friends can chatter about.
