It's understandable that upon leaving Shame, the first word on everybody's tongue is "Fassbender." Nevertheless, "Mulligan" deserves another go, since the actress is equally as good as her male co-star. In just a few scenes, Carey Mulligan threatens to steal the spotlight from Fassbender’s bravura work. Just take this brief snippet of her performance of “New York, New York” in one of the most pivotal scenes of the film. You’ll have to buy a ticket to see the scene in its full glory, though. (Trust me, it’s worth it.) SAG and the Golden Globes might have snubbed you, Miss Mulligan, and shame on them for doing so; however, you still have my vote.
For your consideration.
