Thanks for posting the comments from Gerwig. Many of the posters here are aware of the topic concerning her talent and how to describe it because we discussed it quite a lot on the IMDB board. I've said many times it'd be easier if I had professional writing skills because I've written about this topic and can sound cliched. However, I sincerely agree with Gerwig's reaction to her when interviewed by Kris Tapley. When in doubt, just put the camera up in her face!
In addition, the "savant" comment rings true as she indeed just draws upon some "natural" current quite easily in her films. I've previously observed that there's something frequently unexplainable about how she "pops" on film. It's like she has this intuitive sense of projecting herself sometimes so subtly through the particular medium of film. Even in her most (easily) poorly rated film The Host, there's such a stunning presence in so many scenes, and she's able to pull off things others simply could not. For example, when she's seated at the table with the others who're fascinated about her past lives and nature, one might feel the dialogue is ridiculous, but you actually believe her character due to the intense sincerity Saoirse projects. She amazing, and at just 22, her best work is ahead.@Mark
My pleasure. Did you view the entire play? When I used the original link from the email, it played fine for me. However, if I attempt to open the file now, Quicktime won't do it. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might open and play it?@Poetswan.
I do hope your tests went well. It's nice that you'll have a little break now. We've gone through these slow times quite a bit in the past. It's due to the nature of the business. The happy news is she should have multiple films (how many I don't know) out this year, and I'm very please Saoirse has two more projects definitely going into production during the balance of this year.
I want to recommend a film I recently viewed because I know you're really into film. It's the best I've seen in a while: Frantz
It's a beautiful if meloncholy film easily outclassing anything I've viewed so far in 2017. In a little while, I'm off to watch a highly rated Japanese film called "After the Storm."
