User Reviews

It's worth renting "Crush" if only to see more of NZ actress Donogh Rees.
22 March 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This gifted performer lives and works in Auckland, thus depriving the world at large of another Meryl Streep. Lucky Kiwis can watch her most evenings on the local soap Shortland Street, where she raises the bar regularly for her costars. She has appeared on Xena and Hercules and last year patrons of the Maidment Theatre were treated to a compelling performance in The Beauty Queen of Leenane. If you want definitive proof of her talents, rent 1984's "Constance." Brilliant stuff.

I'm not a relative! Just an expat American living in Auckland who would pay to see this women reading from the phone book and wishing Hollywood would take notice.
