Tour-de-force performances by
Jeffrey Wright
Meryl Streep
Al Pacino
Patrick Wilson & the rest of the cast.

Al Pacino was EXCELLENT as the MEAN Roy Cohn (with his conscious "whipping his arse", played by the MAGNIFICENT, Meryl Streep, as Ethel Rosenberg; who was wrongly accused of treason in 1951). Her recital of the Kaddish was remarkable.

I never saw the B'way play, but judging by this film, Tony Kushner's awards were well-deserved. This is not just great theater; it's a great work of modern history.

Emma Thompson? Al Pacino? Glenn Close? How could you not love it? Edgy fanatsy-realism.
