Remind me, who did Scheiner play in Bright Star?

And, yes. Hoffmann did make a good Max.

Schneider was Charles Armitage Brown in it, the witty other poet.

Hey, you know would be a good idea? Next year, you should give a seperate child actor nominations. First time young ones can't always carry a movie, but it's fun to see them go for it.

Of course, you shouldn't be to cruel on performers under 18, but you could tell people there's a kid with very real talent without putting the others down, right?

Nick Duval said...

Maybe I should.

I would probably nominate the actress who was in Towelhead and played Jasmine, the protagonist, for my best child actor.
