Now, here is another actress who has picked similar roles of late (independent women facing sudden crisis) whose choices aren't grating on me. Jodie Foster may be playing a lot of "in jeopardy" parts, yet they haven't gotten old. I guess "Panic Room," "Flight Plan" and now "The Brave One" are proof that we never tire of seeing Ms. Foster kick serious ass.
Plus, DAMN, look at her arms. I love women with sinewy forearms. And I love a woman with sinewy forearms brandishing a firearm. Check that, a big gun.
These are shots of Jodie filming "The Brave One" in Brooklyn this week. In the movie, Jodie plays a woman recovering from a brutal attack who seeks revenge. Kind of sounds like "The Accused" without the lawyers.
