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.

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,
-Michelle- :D
