 Article: New York Magazine - Little Leelee
Raised on the Upper West Side by fiercely protective parents, Jean and Elizabeth Sobieski, Leelee -- whose real name is Liliane -- still shares a room with her younger brother in the rent-stabilized apartment her mother moved into during college.
Her freelance-writer mom and painter dad introduced Leelee to Shakespeare in the Park when she was 3, took her on the SoHo art-gallery circuit every weekend, and refused to let her watch more than one hour of television per week.
With a bright smile, chubby cheeks, and long, long hair and legs, Sobieski is the perfect ratio of girl to woman for studios hungry for the next Liv Tyler, Claire Danes, or Christina Ricci -- intelligent, sexy ingenues who seem to have been plucked straight out of A.P. comp-lit classes.

 'A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries' (R)
Based on the autobiographical novel by Kaylie Jones (daughter of the late novelist James Jones, who wrote "From Here to Eternity" and "Some Came Running"), the events of the movie are filament-thin and insubstantial but, like fine silk threads, they weave together a fabric of surpassing warmth and texture.
In a sense, this is a story of perseverance, but perseverance only in the face of the numerous, quotidian calamities of any young girl's life – petty sibling rivalries, playing "doctor" with the boy next door, the first menstrual period, adolescent crushes and loss of virginity.
Luisa Conlon is understated and believable as the young Channe, and newcomer Sobieski (breaking away from the cipher she played in "Deep Impact") is superb as the adolescent heroine.

At sixteen, Leelee Sobieski is the kind of probing, intensely lyrical actress who keeps you guessing throughout the changeable weather of a film and beyond.
All she would say is that Kubrick "smelled good" and that, at her request, he'd given her a lock of his hair in an as-yet-unopened envelope, her intention being to clone him.
The scenes between Kristofferson and Sobieski are some of the most moving father-daughter scenes we've seen in years, but Sobieski is fascinating throughout the film - a quicksilver study in intellect vying with emotion.

At the moment, she is understudying the leading role in a play, while secretly sleeping with Philippe, Jalil Lespert, who is married to the lead actress.
It's a difficult, challenging theme to bring off but, thanks to the excellent performances of Sobieski, who speaks good French and does a passable Aussie accent, and Hong, who speaks bad French but whose face is amazingly expressive, it works wonderfully well.
Neither her character of Sarah or James Hong’s M. Zao is defined for us and so they’re not terribly interesting, and the relationship between them is so intangible that it also is not something that engages us.
