THE DEEP BLUE SEA (2011)

Tom Hiddleston, The Deep Blue Sea (2011)

The Hiddler has done plenty of stage work – most recently as a barnstorming Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse – so the theatrical elegance of Terence Davies’s Rattigan adaptation must have suited him down to its Blitz-rubble-strewn ground. With typical nuance, he plays Freddie Page, an ex-RAF man and Battle of Britain survivor whose raffish confidence masks deeper turmoil. Page is a callow man torn between his desire for a desirable but married woman (Rachel Weisz) and an impulse to run like hell from the first sign of commitment. This film features icy reserve, reckless indifference to his lover’s predicament and scenes of mild golf. If you come for the super-sharks, you’ll been disappointed.

1 Just 6 of his many talented roles...
He really is a wonderful actor, I love Midnight In Paris & I was lucky enough to see Coriolanus both in person and at the NTLive screening. He's the reason I refound my love of acting. He's a wonderful human being too. More

all the works of Mr Hiddleston aka T-Hiddy is amazing, but my favorite: the number 4, yep. I discovered existence of this man with this movie; and when I saw in Coriolanus, well... That's it, case closed... More

Dear Empire, Thanks for feeding us regular bits about Tom. Love the guy. I had the chance to see him live in Coriolanus and agree with Pennj that he was fantastic in that too. I still need to check out the Joanna Hogg movies though. More

My new favourite actor, he seems intelligent, sincere and hard-working. And he made me cry for a megalomaniac who wants to enslave humanity! No mean feat! More

7 Coriolanus
Hello! Missed the best one, Coriolanus. I could write essays to describe his performance, but to be honest, there are better reviewers than me. All i can add is go and see the National Theatre showing at your local cinema. Truly, this man portrays emotional angst, anger, conceit, sarcasm and vulnerability like no other actor, that I can think of, in his particular age group. More
