For the last two or three years Andrea Riseborough, the 31 year-old lead female in Eran Creevy‘s Welcome to The Punch (IFC Films, 3.27), has been an industry “comer”, which is one level down from industry star and one or two levels down from being a name among ticket buyers. She’s obviously talented and kinda Streepy on a certain level, but the right role — the one that puts her over — hasn’t happened yet. I’d say she has two or three years to find it. Okay, four.

Riseborough’s best role so far was in Shadow Dancer, the 2012 IRA spy drama that came out last year (and which I saw and loved at Sundance 2012).
