Favourite Characters -
Miriam; The World Unseen
Her subtlety and emotion both radiate warmth - these combined produce a true empathy for the character within the viewer. Lisa Ray has outdone herself and has shown maturity and control in her performance (compared to how she comes across in interviews; quite energetic, talkative, powerful and intent- pretty opposite to her character, which makes it more of a pleasure watching how she handles Miriam’s etiquette. She portrays a sort of curiosity and somewhat playfulness in Miriam that draws the viewer in and brings forth that ‘want to know more’ feeling within them.
A gorgeous novel and movie by Shamim Sarif.
