    Two of my all time favorite performances are Rebecca Hall in Christine and Jessica Chastain in Miss Sloane.

    Sadly both got lost in the mix of bigger films, but the dominance of the characters and delivery amazed me hugely.

    The Nice Guys is a masterpiece, and Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling we’re both outstanding in it.
