NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Art -

Some of Canada’s best film ac­tors hold their own per­for­mances at a skep­ti­cal dis­tance. Sarah Pol­ley can do that trick, but her own sig­na­ture move is an un­nerv­ing gaze. A Pol­ley close-up can strip paint. Even more stag­ger­ing is the im­pres­sion that she’s sub­ject­ing her own soul to the same still in­tel­li­gence. Kristen Thom­son and Matthew Fer­gu­son are al­ways im­pres­sive, but Pol­ley’s courage rocks hard.
