This week we talk about a movie with difficult subject matter, but executed in a superb manner.  Academy Award nominee Brie Larson gives a great performance in a film that also gets Frank director Lenny Abrahamson his first Oscar nomination.  We spend time on both the lead actress and the director, but we also point out the other great performances in this movie that I'm sure we will both revisit, even if it may be difficult.  Subscribe on iTunes:  Check out our Facebook page: and follow us on twitter @actorengineer.
