Kate Winslet Stars In Ground Breaking Romance With Eve Branson: Necker In Flames (Photos)

by | 23rd, August 2011

RICHARD Branson’s island is the subject of a tabloid bidding war. The tycoon’s massive house on Necker (now twinned with Tottenham) – the humbly named Great House – has been hit and lit by lightning as the region was smashed by Hurricane Irene.

The star of this made-for-TV movie is handsome Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet , who plays herself carrying Branson’s 90-year-old mother Eve to safety.

Dim the lights and set the set the sex scene to “controversial” and “ground-breaking”, as the Daily Mail writes:

…courageous Miss Winslet acted like a true Hollywood heroine as she swept his 90-year-old mother Eve into her arms and helped carry her to safety as the mansion crumbled around them.

Toss in a throbbing Celine Dion soundtrack and you’ve got a film to break taboos.

But debate rags of the value of the venue. The Mail says the island is worth £60m. The Sun says the island is worth £90m. Is the Winslet Factor worth £30million? Will lovelorn anti-ageists like Peter Stringfellow, Demi Moore and Joan Collins flock tot he island to relive the now famous moment when Kate met Eve..?
