I just think she's great, she seemed to spring up out of nowhere but I love the range of roles she's played. I post this discussion under this particular film as we see some other assets of hers (cough), but I honestly think she's got to be one of the big breakout actresses (her indy choices and big budget films are all well chosen) from the help to tree of life to take shelter,
now apparently she'll be in a new film where she has a gothic makeover and it has horror undertones, Mama or something?
Hope we see more of her
On another note, as for Hardy I think most people have really taking a liking to his style since Warrior if not before but I just hope that he takes on more roles like this and that people don't start dismissing him as merely Bane
by the way what was Guy Ritchies accent here, was it supposed to sound like 1920's chicago? I thought his character was from chicago but it sounded slightly off (maybe it was a period thing they were going for that I'm umaware of)
Hardy has been giving phenomenal performances since 2001. See the kid Hardy stealing the show Star Trek Nemesis as Shinzon. His brilliant Bronson in 2009 earned him best actor award in UK. His TV (UK) performance as the gaunt homeless man in Stuart: A Life Backwards (also 2009) was over-ridden by Andrew Garfield"s Boy A at the awards. His ensemble work, such as Handsome Bob in RocknRolla and Ricki Tarr in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, show the audience what incredible range this actor has. Check out his filmography to see why directors call him "the chameleon." At last he's been imported to the US for a while. Can't wait to see more indie films from him next year or even his take on the iconic Mad Max. Very excited he's doing a trilogy of films, the first called Cicero [IL], based on the life of Al Capone.
