Charlize Theron: A Viewer's Guide |

RECOMMENDED: In The Valley Of Elah (2007)

Mark ‘Hurt Locker’ Boal’s Playboy article formed the basis for this tough, worthy Iraq war thriller. It’s Tommy Lee Jones’ film, but Theron provides stellar support as a crusading detective and single mum who supports Jones’ quest to find out what really happened to his son in Iraq. Theron, said Empire’s reviewer, generates “depth and honesty” in a demanding role. She also tones down her good looks with a severe ponytail, carrying the harried expression of a woman who’s keeping the pursuit of justice and her domestic chores in desperate equilibrium.

1 RE: Devils Advocate!!!
I enjoyed Hancock but Devil's Advocate ended two scenes too late and suffered from a typical Pacino hambush. More

3 Two worthy mentions
Two Days in The Valley - Psycho Blonde Barbie kicks Lois Lane's (Terri hatcher) a$$, and wears (briefly) some of the sexiest negligee ever. The Devils Advocate - don't let the devil into your head ! Sexy southern chick disintergrates into possessed mad crazy thing. This got my entire house screaming "NOT THE MIRROR!!!! NOOOOOOO! " More

6 Recognition for our Charlize
Thanks for this, Charlize doesn't get enough credit for what a great actress she is. And thanks for writing Benoni-born as if everyone knows where it is. :) More
