That archetype isn't unique, it's been done a thousand times over to win the hearts of the audience. Doesn't mean it didn't work though.

I thought that too actually. I remember watching The Iron Lady and thinking how the actress playing the younger Margaret Thatcher felt very forced in comparison to Streep's performance, and it felt very inconsistent. Dreadful film either way, but my point still stands.Cilogy wrote:the kid who played young Turing was pretty great btw
I feel like we really don't get performances that are more than just serviceable for these flashback roles in biopics.
