Saldana praised for Avatar

Two 31-year old Dominicans, Zoe Saldana in the lead female role (Neytiri) and Michelle Rodriguez star in the new epic action adventure fantasy “Avatar,” directed by James Cameron, of Titanic fame. The film tells the story of a reluctant hero who embarks on a journey of redemption, discovery and unexpected love. The film, which premiered last week, is one of Hollywood’s most talked about movies of the moment. Saldana is receiving critical acclaim for the facial expressions of her Avatar character.

The film is expected to open soon in Dominican theaters.
