Annie Lennox can act
11 January 2006 | by (West Chester, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

Okay - the other review of this show is for the birds - the person hasn't even seen it - so why comment on it - to this day I remember the segment called THE ROOM - Annie Lennox and Linda Hunt are brilliant together, dark and moody, I wish I could see this show again to bring out all the details that I remember from it.

Given that it was made for TV - it will probably never surface again - but someone, somewhere has to have this on tape or DVD by now - and when/if they release it - I will be one of the ones in line to add it to my collection to watch again and again.

John Travolta was in a career slump - but that was of his own doing - he should have read the scripts and not cashed the check during this point in his life, but he's since recovered from this point and done well indeed.

But it's always going to be the segment with Annie that strikes my memory - she's not just a truly gifted signer/songwriter/performer - she can act. Given that each of her videos from the Eurythmics is a bit of acting - it's nice to see her spread her wings and soar!
