Présentation de l'éditeur

Sadie's childhood was anything but conventional and she learned from and early age what it was like to be different: she lived in a hippy commune and ran away with her parents to Formentera with the first 'ravers' to colonise the Balearic Islands. Her relationship with her father was intense and volatile; he was a brilliant but eccentric artist, who even once used Sadie as an art installation by tying her to a crucifix outside the Royal College, telling her she was the son of God. His erratic behaviour forced Sadie to escape to a world of make believe; her instinct for survival brought out a fierce independence and burning ambition in her - a desire to make it in order to escape the demons that haunted her. Sadie's talent and ambition won her a scholarship to the Italia Conti Stage School and, by her late teens, she was working as a model and was immersed in the London punk scene. Recognition in acting soon came along whe she appeared in Diamond Skulls with Gabriel Byrne but her big break was winning the part of Lucy in the blockbuster movie, Dracula. In this candid book, Sadie tells her whole life story in her own unique style. She discloses the details of her anarchic childhood and teenage years; she tells all the behind-the-scenes stories from the films she has worked on, including staying at Francis Ford Coppola's Hollywood home; she reveals the story of her marriage to Spandau Ballet's Gary Kemp and how she left her idyllic family life with him when she met Jude Law on the set of the film Shopping, later marrying him. From a prominent tabloid life, to being part of the notorious Primrose Hill set, Sadie has had to deal with a shadow being cast over the true facts of her life. In search of peace and happiness, she deals with her much-publicised struggle with post-natal depression and the death of her father in the glare of the media. In spite of all this, Sadie continues to achieve great success in her career while raising her four children, who are her pride and joy. This is the story of a woman finding herself again - against all the odds - and finally growing up.

HASH(0x95f4bd68) étoiles sur 5 Coming of Age Meets Middle Age 15 septembre 2011
Par Ria Darling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Unlike other reviews, I don't really know the scoop on her relationship with Jude Law. Nor did I buy the book for that, I really bought it becuase she was a bit of an It girl for the late 80's-90's with her relationship with Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet) and in Coppola's Dracula. The book is good and full of little nuggets about other celebs (Kate Moss, Gavin Rossdale,Carl Barat from the Libertines) but it's not very reflective. She tells the story of her hippie/artist parents (with 9+ step-siblings), being on her own since 16 and it's easy to see how her upbringing has played a role in her adult relationships. However, she rarely attributes insight or emotion or explains her behaviour. It would be a more interesting book if she did. It's a quick read and enjoyable and made me like her (rather than envy her).

HASH(0x95b668cc) étoiles sur 5 A sad but honest story 4 mai 2013
Par John F. Mollard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My introduction to Sadie Frost was Bram Stoker's Dracula in November 1992. Upon seeing the movie I was instantly smitten with her beauty in the role of the doomed Lucy Westenra. I bought the Making Of book, the expensive Criterion laserdisc, soundtrack, novels, etc. I even had a poster of Sadie in her vamped out form on my bedroom wall. I've been a fan of hers ever since. My fave roles of hers are Dracula (hard to watch the film now without cringing at the awful dialogue and subpar performances by Keanu and Winona. Only the British actors are good.), The Cisco Kid, and Pyromaniac's Love Story (got the poster too). Up until this book's publication, I knew very little about Sadie's early life. And, now that I've read her autobiography, I can't help but feel sorry for her. Such a terrible childhood. I know exactly what it's like to have a chronically angry father. Mine was pretty bad too. It's amazing to read Sadie still found the ability to still love such a monster after witnessing such anger and abuse to her family. I also had no idea she had a bad lung. And her manic depression? I know what that's like too. I've struggled with it all my life. I hope and pray I don't turn into my father either.

Yes, I quite enjoyed this autobiography. I read a lot of celebrity bios, but this one seemed one of the more honest. Letting everything out on the line can be truly painful, but also very therapeutic at the same time. My only complaint would be: I wish she wrote more about her various films. Barely mentions them at all. Only the pivotal ones that helped her breakthrough. I like the stuff on how she got the Dracula role, especially the "shaving" bit. Hilarious.

As a movie geek, I enjoyed this book. Not a masterpiece, but I certainly found it enlightening. You think you know everything about someone from all the headlines, but that's not always true. How little I knew about this one.

"Nighty night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite."

From one author (I wrote the forthcoming LA noir novel MACGUFFIN) to another (Sadie Frost)... chin up, stand tall, keep moving forward, and never look back.

"When things are at their darkest, pal, it's a brave man who can kick back and party."

Cheers...

I have paid attention to Sadie Frost every since I started reading the Daily Mail, which has been about five years now. Over the course of the years, she seems to be a lightweight woman. This book doesn't stray far from that impression. Yes, she is honest about her life. ( At least, about what she is legally able to reveal. Jude Law went to court and had sordid details about their marriage and children removed.) But somehow, there is something very trite about Sadie Frost. She even admits to being as common as they come after noting she was being cast as elegant women for music videos. This is a very simple memoir, no uncommon insights were seen in my opinion.

HASH(0x952443f0) étoiles sur 5 Not my - nor Sadie's - cup of tea. 9 septembre 2012
Par Tony Hughes - Publié sur Amazon.com

Sadie Frost has, so far, led an unconventional life. That much is true. What I'm not so sure about is the remainder of the content of this autobiography. I'm really having a hard time believing that she can remember verbatim conversations she had with her father as a 2 year old. That really just doesn't ever happen. Also, the book is partly written in a style that read like she's the age she was during the events described. That is, her descriptions of anything from recreational drugs to the band Oasis come over as hackneyed and forced. It's 'Mummy' this and 'a band called the Gallaghers' that; only later on does she revert to conventional storytelling.

Also irritating, her missing out the 'drugs on the floor at birthday party' incident, claiming that 'legal reasons' prevented her from spilling the beans. Not surprisingly, I came away knowing almost nothing of Jude Law, only slightly more about Gary Kemp and, I have to say, less about Sadie than before I picked up the book.

She's an artist? Artiste? Songwriter? Actress? Down-to-earth-mom-of-four? None of these maybe? While these days do read as crazy, one cannot help thinking that most of the craziness has been self-inflicted. Sadie's looks have given her more chances in life than you or me, but even with that, she's gone a long way to screwing a lot of them up.

I'm a big Jude Law fan and always wanted to know more about his former wife, who I always admired and cherished. After reading her book I feel like I have a special relationship with her, like I know her well. She is an amazing woman who suffered far too much and this books just shows how great she is. Also a good book to read if you deal with depression, as Sadie explains how her mental illness impacted her life. Good read!
