Best Performance of all time by an Actress
15 February 1999 | by (Boston, Ma.) – See all my reviews

This ranks with Agnes Moorehead in The Magnificent Ambersons and Katherine Hepburn in Long Day's Journey Into Night as the single greatest performance recorded on film by a woman. Maggie Smith will rip your heart out!
