She was Lestrange, the picture that Newt keeps of her is in his suitcase.

I don't even know if Zoe Kravitz is a good enough actress to portray a Lestrange adequately, particularly if we consider she is similar to Bellatrix's character.

I think she can pull it off. She can look very sweet but also very commanding (Mad Max)

She was genuine, charming and had good chemistry with Redmayne.

When are you seeing it m4?

Spoilers spoilers spoilers:
I expected that Newt/Tina would be the big story love story but that went to Jacob/Queenie. Quite glad with that actually, I feel like Newt/Tina need to spend more time together to really fall in love, to make it fully satisfactory lol. Newt is a bit too difficult to fall in love so easily and there's still the Lestrange dilemma which they'll undoubtedly bring back in the story in the sequels. I like to see Newt and Tina struggle, especially Newt with Lestrange before they (N&T) really come together.
Really, production design and costumes were top-notch in this, wouldn't be surprised if at least the latter would nab an Oscar Nom.

Don't listen to Nomis lol. Reviews are right, she's incredibly bland, spends most of the movie standing around doing pretty much nothing, and is presented sort of as a nag and that feeling doesn't go away. Miscast role and a badly written one at that. Of the four leads she's the weakest link, which is pretty much what reviews agree on.
