Wait a minute…someone else (Newsweek‘s David Ansen) has seen Down to the Bone, that hide-and-seek movie that opened with zero fanfare in New York and Los Angeles about three weeks ago, and has come away impressed by Vera Farmiga‘s lead performance. Ansen says Farmiga is “a revelation as a working-class junkie struggling to get clean.” Yesterday (Saturday, 12.10) the Los Angeles Film Critics proclaimed Farmiga Best Actress of the Year for the same performance. This is fascinating. I was invited to three screenings by Lisa Danna of the GS Entertainment Marketing Group in early November, but I was too busy being busy.
