After seeing his trailer for Nine Lives when seeing The Secret Life of Pets and The BFG earlier today, it got me thinking about the film’s main star. Two-time Academy winner Kevin Spacey has long been considered one of cinema’s true greats. I’ve been lucky to see the great man up close in his one man show Clarence Darrow where his acting was sublime. He may have been focused on his theatre work and his role in House of Cards in the past few years, but he still has a fine Hollywood CV. How many of the six films below do you know? Do you have a favourite performance?
As seen from my quiz of plays in black and white, there have been some very fine films from such a wonderful source. Here are six more recent films from plays, covering a wide range of decades, talent and topics. Who wants to play? 😉
