Lionsgate has provided Hit Fix/Awards Campaign columnist Greg Ellwood with an exclusive clip from Jim Sheridan‘s Brothers (which I’m seeing this evening) in which costars Carey Mulligan — the Best Actress front-runner for her work in An Education — and Natalie Portman share a low-key scene. I say again — half of the British-born Mulligan’s natural charm goes out the window when she’s obliged to speak with an American accent. (I’ve posted the embed code twice and it doesn’t work — screw it.)
