Elif and Gwyneth


Newspapers in Turkey welcomed the acquittal of the novelist Elif Şafak. She had faced charges of "insulting Turkishness" under Article 301 of the Turkish Penal Code. There are some references to the Armenian Genocide in one of her novels.

If Hollywood decides to make a movie about it, it could call it ?Midnight Press".
Oliver Stone could write the script. As you might remember, he wrote ?Midnight Express? the story of an American drug smuggler caught in Turkey. The Armenian director Atom Egoyan could direct and as you can see Gwyneth Paltrow is perfect for the leading role!
