You want to throttle flighty, self-involved Mary. Sure, she's had a rough time, what with her husband leaving her when she's so needy and all.

Yet five minutes into Leslie Manville's X-ray-like performance as Mary, you can simultaneously understand why the ex-hubby was drawn to her (her bubbly vivaciousness, her hot-blooded yearning for affection) and why he later headed for the hills (ditto).

 

We Also Loved: Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right; Vanessa Redgrave, Letters to Juliet; Tilda Swinton, I Am Love.
