MEDIA APPEARANCE: David Ehrlich's IndieWire Critics Survey on July 2, 2018
Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work. Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members, accepted the invitation to participate. I'm honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: Who is the best or most promising actor or actress under the age of 30?
The responses have been grouped alphabetically by the performers last name, from Chalamet to Wright. You'll find me on page 2 singing the praises of Room Academy Award winner Brie Larson who turns 29 this year. If I could pick another, my second choice would have been Saoirse Ronan from Brooklyn and Lady Bird. Sorry, Jennifer Lawrence fans, I'll take Brie.
