    Default Movies - involving photography

    I did a thread search without any good results. Anyone know of any good movies involving photography or with a photographer as an active character?

    I just think that'd be fun to watch. I'm particularly interested in photojournalists or national geographics photographer type characters. Thanx

    My favourite is The Bridges of Madison County. A very touching tale. Clint is using Nikon for his assignments.

    Not really a photographer, but he does have something that every photographer drools.

    Recently Julia Roberts starred in a film by the name CLOSER, where I presume she is a photographer in that movie. In the trailers, I saw her using a Leica and Hassy.

    Cheers,
