Jude Law: Rave Reviews for 'Anna Christie'!
Jude Law leaves the Donmar Warehouse after performing in Anna Christie on Thursday (August 11) in London, England.
The 38-year-old British actor stars in the revival of Eugene O’Neill‘s 1921 play and has been earning rave reviews.
“Law, in the best performance I’ve seen him give, is also excellent as [a] brawny lover. Cast against type, [he] conveys the muscular innocence of a man who has a rolling nautical gait, looks deeply uncomfortable in a suit and acts purely on instinct: when happy, Law essays a jaunty Irish jig and, when enraged, pummels pillows and hurls chairs at walls with primitive abandon,” The Guardian‘s reviewer wrote.
“I suspect it’s a breakthrough performance in that it releases Law from the tyranny of always being seen as the good-looking lead man and allows him to become a character actor,” he added.
