The Skeleton Twins
I love comedians. Conventional wisdom has always been against this idea, but I think comedians are generally better actors than dramatic ones. Comedy is much harder, and requires something personal. A dramatic actor can hide behind costumes or accents and disappear into a role, but a comedian is always on display, always risking something. But because the result, laughter, is a physical response rather than a mental one, tastemakers automatically assume that it's a lower, and lesser, response. So it's a great treat for me when the most talented of comedians gets the call to step up and do something extraordinary, to make a movie that is funny, but also takes a moment to wonder about the world.
