“Trouble With The Curve” UK Poster
TWTC has its premiere last night in USA, and there’s some reviews online already, which are being good so far. Mostly of reviews are praising Amy’s performance, specially if compared with her work on “The Master”, since both Peggy Dodd and Mickey are really different characters which Amy plays beautifully!
Eastwood, though charmingly grumpy and brimming with vitriol, steps back in “Curve” and lets Adams take center stage. The actress, also currently co-starring in “The Master,” hits her role out of the park. At first we see her as a flustered and bitter workaholic. As the film progresses she transforms into a vulnerable, but angry, daughter, before inhabiting the returned innocence of a young girl in love with baseball. Watching Adams drop her guard and join Eastwood in the love of the game is a real treat. Between her performance here and in “The Master,” it won’t be long before she’s an Oscar winner.- Fox News
It’d be more boring if the company weren’t so agreeable. Adams, the three-time Oscar nominee who’s great whether she’s being sweet (“Enchanted”), scrappy (“The Fighter”) or stoic (“Doubt,” “The Master”), seems to be having fun just letting her red hair down. – NY Daily
Of course the movie is sentimental. A fairy tale? Yes, it’s that too. Satisfying? Yep. The key, I think, is the restaurant scene between Adams and Eastwood where she confronts him about how she was, and wasn’t, raised by Gus. It’s played by both actors with minimal fuss and maximum honesty. – Chicago Tribune
