Gemma's new film
Gemma Ward makes an appearance in the new film the Black Balloon. The transition from model to actress is usually awkward, but in Ward's case, it is different. This movie is not ruined by the model. The film describes Jackie Masters' (Gemma Ward) encounter with Thomas Mollison (Rhys Wakefield) and his autistic brother, Charlie (Luke Ford).
So far the movie is getting positive reviews. The Black Balloon scored a Berlin Film Festival Crystal Bear prize. The characters are being called authentic, comparable to those in the oscar nominated film Juno.
