Poll: Which Brie Larson performance do you prefer?
The last few weeks have been quite interesting for us at InSession Film. As noted here, we are big fans of Kathryn Bigelow and it was great to finally have her back last week with Detroit. It was the first time we had a chance to discuss her on the show. Similarly, in our first year of operation (2013), we saw the release of Short Term 12, one of the best films to come out that year and it also launched Brie Larson into stardom. Unfortunately though, we never found the opportunity to review that film on the show back then. So imagine our excitement when we found out that Short Term 12 writer-director would be teaming up with Larson again for The Glass Castle, hitting theaters this week. And that’s what were using as inspiration for our poll this week.
Specifically, we are matching up Larson’s performance in Short Term 12 with her Oscar-winning performance in Room. One could argue she should have been nominated for 12, but either way, you can’t go wrong here in our opinion. That said, you have to pick one, so choose wisely!
