A Magnificent Performance
18 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Emily Watson is arguably the finest actor of our time, male or female. Regarding this film, there is certainly no possible debate. Watson is nothing less than magnificent. In a breathtaking performance of incredible magnitude, she sets the screen ablaze with her stunning talent. A fantastically gifted actor, Emily Watson can express more emotion with her eyes or a glance than even 50 pages of dialog. She takes the character she portrays in this film and creates a living, flesh and blood human being we can not help but embrace. It is an emotional tour de force and a performance of stunning power and depth. While Watson always does exemplary work in every production, this particular role is a masterpiece. That this motion picture was not widely released and did not have the impact it should have upon the public is an outrage. That Emily Watson received no Oscar or BAFTA nomination a crime.
