Chris, I think you're right. She does fit, beautifully. I wonder why I didn't think of her myself.
The first time I ever saw Minnie Driver was in an Irish movie about a homely girl whom the men all ignored. Then a couple of years later she turned up at the Academy Awards looking like something out of the pages of Vogue. I like that chameleon quality; and yes, she is one hell of an actor. I think she'd make an excellent Marian.
