"OU alumna performs in movie starring Julia Roberts"
"OU alumna Michele Hillen recently portrayed an art history student in 'Mona Lisa Smile,' a Sony Pictures release starring Julia Roberts. The movie takes place at all-female Wellesley College in 1953. Hillen's character is enrolled in a class taught by Katherine Watson (Roberts), a free-spirited Californian who ruffles feathers at the prestigious, yet snooty, institution with her progressive leanings. Hillen also had the opportunity to rub elbows with classmates played by noted actresses Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles. Thus far, the film represents one of the high points of Hillen's career."
