Al Pacino says she’s a genius…

I think she’s a super nova star.  Thank God the stars are being allowed to shine again.

A couple of weeks ago at the Venice Film Festival, we saw a real return to talent.  It makes me so very excited.

I saw Jessica Chastain (pictured) in “Tree of Life” starring next to Brad Pitt and I just could not take my eyes off her.  In Al Pacino’s film “Wild Salome” she plays the siren to it’s zenith and then then again another stella performance in “The Help”

This actress, this year alone has over seven films coming out, if the three i’ve seen is any indication to her talent, and that’s all she seems to be about, I’m extremely excited.

    She did such a great job in The Help. And had quite a sense of humor on Jimmy Fallon. I can’t wait to see more of her work.

      I’m torn between “Wilde Salome” and “Carnage”, I may be leaning on Wilde Salome though.

    She’s GENIUS! Tree of Life, The Help, Take Shelter — she was brilliant in every last one, and if the film wasn’t good, she still was. So excited by this girl.

    I’ve only seen The Help, which I loved her performance. I can’t wait to see her in the films mentioned above. I also liked her interview on Chelsea Lately.

    Wondering how to get in touch with someone regarding Garage Magazine contributions and employment. The vision behind it is exquisite and I would love nothing more than to be a part of the avant-garde, more subversive and interesting, Garage.

    She was amazing in The Help! I really warmed to her character in the film compared to the book!
