My First Colin Firth Experience!
11 March 2011 | by susan-317See all my reviews

I was not familiar with any of the male actors in this movie when I happened upon it on cable. I fell in love with both Colin Firth and Ciaran Hinds who are both excellent in this. It's a difficult story but an important one historically, telling the tale of the Iran hostages and the political situation surrounding their capture and eventual release. The movie does not condemn the kidnappers, but instead illustrates what the powerless do to become the powerful. It's tragic, but true.

Kathy Bates has a small role, but was the biggest star in the film -- then!

I next saw Colin in Valmont and Ciaran Hinds in Circle of Friends. Colin ran off to have a baby with Meg Tilly but, thankfully, returned to acting soon. Such a wonderful talent! See all of these films if you can. Also, see Colin in The Advocate. What a great film. It's grand that Colin is finally getting the attention he deserves.
