Tilda Swinton I Am LoveOscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton ('Michael Clayton') delivers yet another radiant performance in the new Italian melodrama 'I Am Love,' which re-teams her with director Luca Guadagnino.

In the film, opening in select theaters Friday, Swinton plays Emma, a Russian woman who marries into a wealthy Italian family. At first glance, Emma appears to have it all: money, a loving husband, beautiful children -- that is, until she meets Antonio (Edoardo Gabbriellini), a budding young chef who is a friend of her son's. The two quickly enter into a passionate, yet ultimately tragic, love affair that will alter the course of Emma's family forever.

In preparation for the film's release, Swinton spoke to Moviefone about how long it took to get made, speaking Italian, winning an Oscar, her plans for the future and whether she and Guadagnino really plan to remake 'Auntie Mame.'
