Samantha Morton! Samantha Morton! Let’s sing the praises of Samantha Morton.
Always complex and riveting, 31-year-old Morton has accumulated many stand-out roles. Here are just a few:
“Sweet and Lowdown” (1999) as a mute laundress
“Jesus’ Son” (2000) as a heroin addict
“Morvern Caller” (2002) as a mourning plagiarist
“Minority Report” (2002) as a clairvoyant
“In America” (2003) as an Irish mother in New York
“Control” (2007) as a rock star wife
In “S,NY” she is exceptional as a theater box office attendant crushing on a director, played by lead Philip Seymour Hoffman. With a stellar ensemble cast, they follow the Möbius road created by writer/director Charlie Kaufman.
