Tom Hardy won the LA Film Critics Best Actor award for his performance in this film. Why he was not nominated for the Best Actor Oscar that year is amazing. It was a very competitive year, and many fine performances were left out, but this should been one of them. This is a flawless performance. Made even more difficult because Hardy is the only person in the film. Every emotion, however subtle is covered here, and Hardy never, for one moment, appears as if he's acting, even though you know he is. He has to keep things interesting, confined in a car, on his way to support a woman he had an affair with, who's now giving birth to his child. This all plays out as everything falls apart. He has had to tell his wife and family about the affair, so you know how that goes. Then, there's a large building project he's responsible for, and it's a very delicate project, so he's trying to deal with that, with one of his employees. I don't want to give too much away, but believe me, you want to see this film. It's never boring, even though, again, Hardy is the only person in the film. In some ways, it reminds me of the film Moon, which had another great performance built around a single actor, only there, the actor was playing himself in doubles. Tom Hardy, is by far, one of the best actors working today. It's only a matter of time before he wins an Oscar. SEE THIS FILM!!!!!
