Best Gwynnie movie ever!

January 30, 2006

A theatrical adaptation of “Proof,” written by David Auburn and performed at the Trinity Repertory in Providence, remained one of the most memorable stages Kaoru and I had seen together in the U.S.

So heading out to Yurakucho for the movie adaptation of “Proof,” directed by John Madden and starring Gwynnie, was naturally a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon — and we both loved it!

Gwyneth Paltrow as Catherine was sensitive and brilliantly low key. So much depends upon a subtly arched back, neatly gathered knees with canvas sneakers.

Hope Davis turned in a stinging performance as the intolerable older sister of Catherine’s. I love it that her voice changes into a whiny tone at every emotional pinnacle.

Jake Gyllenhaal was hunky and cute, but I adore his sister twice more. Haven’t seen “Secretary” (2002)? Great quirky-kinky movie. (Rated R for strong sexuality, some nudity, depiction of behavioral disorders, and language.) First and best Maggie movie yet!
