How many of today’s actresses would be prepared to step into the shoes of Griet, the eponymous heroine of “Girl with a Pearl Earring”?

Read 2003/12/01 | Production Story | Girl with a Pearl EarringProducer Andy Paterson and his wife, screenwriter Olivia Hetreed, read Girl With A Pearl Earring in manuscript a few months before its initial publication. "It was a rare treat. I read it in one sitting, almost without breathing" says Hetreed.

Dressed in a turquoise corduroy suit and sporting a shoulder-length mop of hair, the great Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer (Firth) is in the midst of a turbulent domestic scene with his wife (Davis), who has discovered that the servant girl, Griet (Johansson), has modeled for him - wearing her earrings.
