Antoinette Cosway: I loved this place. I loved it with all my heart, and now you've made it a place I hate. I used to think if I lost everything I would still have this, but now I have nothing and I hate it like I hate you and I swear before I die I will show you just how much!

To understand why Rebecca excites me, you can look my posts about Crystal Klein (#39) and Laure Sinclair (#43), Ashley Smith (#76), Jade Nile (#92). All those babes are like Nomi Malone from « Showgirls », they are all look alike of the same girl i worked with for 3 years. That's when beauty is really a divine mix and is out of words : maybe taken together those 5 babes seems different, but for me, they all have a distinct feature I liked in my past coworker. With Rebecca, i would say her pout, her stance and her big smile ! It was luck that lead me to meet her : i have got a free movie ticket : i went to see « Frost vs Nixon » and Bam ! I'm sure also that Rebecca being British helped also because she has this distinct class of bearing that breaths education and politeness and for whatever reasons, i feel also very Anglo- Saxon in spite of being french !

In « VCB », « IR3 », she was definitely a great addition and delivered always great work ! Now, this Caribbean movie is so far the best she has done for me ! First good thing here is that the movie is ultra fast : 80 minutes ! Sure, as a novel adaptation, a lot has been cut but the essential is here and the pace is straight to the point : Rebecca plays with grace all her phases : the candid, the happy, the wounded and at last, the lunatic ! Her partner is also excellent because right from the start, he plays the fragile, anxious one… So in this humid jungle and lonely mansion, they are easy preys and fall to their doom.

And her excerpt is really good: missionary style, grasping her lover and climaxing, very very hot!!
