Vera Farmiga is Aurora in The Vintner's Luck
"Aurora is everything Celeste is not. Celeste is instinct and animal and Aurora is cerebral and emancipation. Celeste is mad, and Aurora is very much in control& all reason and rationale, with little sensual experience."
Vera Farmiga gained international recognition in 2007 for her role in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning film The Departed, co-starring with Matt Damon, Leonardo di Caprio, Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg, with whom she shared the National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble Cast.
