"But the real diamond in the rough, you might be surprised to learn, is Elijah Wood. Beneath Patrick’s boyish countenance, Wood conjures up a whole haunting mess of adolescent insecurity and emotion, allowing his on-screen alter ego the freedom to be both sinister and heartbreaking at the same time. The full impact of Wood’s performance doesn’t sink in right away, and whether it’s ultimately the work of a skilled actor or a skilled casting director is hard to say. Those who spend time trying to figure it out, however, will miss the point; the wisest course of action is just to stop caring and appreciate it as the highly effective performance that it is."
Thankyou grievous_angel for pointing this out. Just hope its been read by those in a certain quarter who, in a pathetic attempt to draw attention to themselves, have been trying to bash Elijah's acting. Trying - and of course failing - unless you count "it sucks" as constructive criticism. Sorry - just needed to get that off my chest.
And I've heard that the wee one is now in London - so near and yet so far.
