Should Andrew Garfield do some Shakespeare?
I mentioned him in one of my earlier posts and I wanted to watch some of his other films, other than his great performance in Spiderman, to get a good idea.
I'm very impressed.
I watched The Social Network again. I don't care for the movie. Sorry. But Andrew's is the best performance in the film. Hands down.
I watched Never Let Me Go for the first time. I love all the actors, but I didn't care for the film. Sorry. Again, Andrew is just great in this.
Then I watched Red Riding. Really gripping. I was very impressed by Andrew's performance. There are some fantastic actors like David Morrissey, but Andrew's was a stand-out performance.
Those seem to be the only major roles he has had, unless I am missing something, and I am eager to see him try something like Shakespeare.
He has very good range as an actor, and he seems to have an adventurous spirit as far as his roles go, so it would be exciting to have him do some classics.
He played Romeo on stage in 2005, so it seems that he is not completely unfamiliar with the Bard.
What do you think?
Shakespeare did not write his plays for us. He wrote them for his audience.
My new versions of these plays transport us back in time to see the plays as they were first performed.
