Some Great Acting

Cate Blanchett
I love Lynn Hirschberg's articles. Her story on how Vera Farmiga sorts through piles of scripts to find that one compelling role worth her time (she argued with Martin Scorsese that her role in "The Departed" was not substantial enough -- Marty agreed and beefed it up -- it was improved but Farmiga felt the character was still 'more a device than anything else') was greatly appreciated. Hirschberg runs down the year in acting at NYT Magazine, and includes a beautiful portfolio of photos (like the one above of Cate Blanchett by Rineke Dijkstra) and a short film by Jake Paltrow, "The First Ones".
