work in tv / watch lots of movies
Sir Richard Attenborough’s performance is off the fucking charts playing a weak-willed man complying with his unhinged, psychic wife’s cuckoo plan to kidnap a child so they can “help” police solve the crime. His face tells us from minute one that there is serious heartbreaking history with this woman that has forced his hand into criminal actions beyond his comfortability. It’s dark and gripping and you experience the whole nightmare scenario through him. Can’t believe he didn’t get a nomination for this.
