There are some performances given by a bunch of young (or younger) actresses that I really can't wait to see regardless of the degree of my interest in the movies they're in.
Yup, list time.
Carey Mulligan Shame
I keep reading wonderful things. I really liked her in An Education and she seems to be great in a different way in "Shame" which is just amazing news!
Glenn Close Alber Nobbs
People seem to really like the performance and it's in the Oscar conversation so I have many reasons to want to see this.
Meryl Streep The Iron Lady
Kate Winslet Carnage
Even more so!
Elizabeth Olsen Martha Marcy May Marlene
Great reviews for the film and the performance. Plus, I really liked the trailer.
Tilda Swinton We Need To Talk About Kevin
In the "too obvious" category as well.
Mia Wasikowska Jane Eyre
I hear she's wonderful. The same about the film.
Michelle Williams My Week With Marilyn
Good actress. Oscar potential. Intriguing match of actress and role. Anything could happen.
Rachel Weisz The Deep Blue Sea
Haven't read/seen the play but it seems like a good role for a good actress.
Vanessa Redgrave Coriolanus
The things I read! I'm expecting her to floor me!
Janet McTeer Albert Nobbs
A talented actress who, I read, is pretty good in the movie.
Judi Dench My Week With Marilyn
I'm not familiar with Dame Sybil Thorndike but a Dame playing another Dame is pretty interesting, especially when you love one of them. And I do. I love you Judi!
