He can f*** fly now? - I’m done… - Hahahahahaha

When I saw this photo, I associated to this:

James Wolcott and François Dischinger spotlight Eddie Redmayne, emotional core of Starz’sThe Pillars of the Earth.

...Although Redmayne’s Jack lags in the shadows during his long reveal—hooded, his voice mute, his manner shy-away—we can detect that he’s a poetic spirit by his beseeching eyes, cute freckles, and sensitive lower lip....
...The Pillars of the Earth brandishes a cast that would do any medieval pageant proud, including Ian MacShane, Rufus Sewell, Donald Sutherland, Alison Pill, Hayley Atwell, and Matthew Macfadyen, but it is Redmayne who furnishes the contemporary emo. Only 28 years old, this English stage actor (who was nominated for - & won - a 2010 Tony Award for Red, reprising his role from original London production) has already proven his vulnerable, stoic stuff on-screen in the brutal mire of Black Death and soon may be thrown into an even more panoramic muckheap...


  1. Great post - as usual. In my spare time I've been watching lot of Eddies stuff I hadn't seen such as Elizabeth 1 and Powder Blue. I'm curious to know if you have a favourite of his work and even and not-so-favourite.

    1. I cannot name one favorite. I especially love his acting in The Yellow Handkerchief and Hick, but like him in his other films too. Recently I rewatched some scenes from Birdsong, he was phenomenal. Of his films I like MWWM and POTE the most.

  2. Agree with you entirely!
