Ga Ga: British Actress Naomie Harris Steals Hearts in My Last Five Girlfriends at TriBeCa Film Festival

mylastfivegirlfriends-naomie-harris In the British bromantic comedy My Last Five Girlfriends, which premiered Thursday night in New York, Londoner Naomie Harris was the girlfriend that stole the TriBeCa Film Festival's hearts (or at least Blindie's!)

According to conservatives, the American way is to praise Jesus, love your guns, go to war and keep quiet if you disagree --or you'll be dubbed a communist or unpatriotic.
