|Jessica Chastain and Sam Worthington|
The older versions of their characters, played respectively by Helen Mirren, Ciaran Hinds and Thomas Wilkinson were also excellent, but hard to imagine the younger actors aging to look like these stalwart veterans. Like a few others, I agree this movie is more interesting when the younger generation is on the screen.
I don't know how much play this movie will get with all the other fluff out there, but I found it a very suspenseful, fast moving and wonderfully acted and directed piece of entertainment and look forward to seeing Jessica Chastain in Ralph Fiennes, directorial debut Coriolanus and Texas Killing Fields, where she again co-stars with Worthington.
It's been a busy week that started out with dinner on the rooftop at a Boutique Hotel in West Hollywood and some interesting company, including the attentions of the tennis pro. Funny, I seem to be attracting tennis players lately.
This weekend I'm hoping to catch The Guard, which was highly recommended by a friend. Brandan Gleeson's performance alone, which looks to be hilarious if the trailer is any indication, will be worth the price of admission. I'm also going to catch the Sunday matinee of "Iris" at the Kodak Theatre, followed by an early dinner at Pizzeria Mozza.
Not a bad way to end the week or begin the new one.
