[Extract relating to Amy Acker]
Amy Acker — Much Ado About Nothing: Not everyone can handle the ins and outs of 400-year-old dialogue, but Amy Acker’s so good at it you forget just how old the source material for Much Ado About Nothing really is. She hits all the notes you’d expect from a Whedon female lead — spunky but vulnerable, passionate but cautious — but it’s the effortless way she does it that sets her apart from almost everyone else in the film. She’s engaging, funny, and the anchor of the whole film. That she isn’t in more movies is criminal.
