| Candice Bergen Shines
I have been a fan of Candice Bergen for years including her top-rated TV show, Murphy Brown, but I was not prepared for her stellar performance in Mary and Tim a little film I never heard of before. I was certainly familiar with the original movie from which Mary and Tim was taken with Mel Gibson and Piper Laurie - an Australian film part of the Australian New Wave Film Movement. Yet Candice Bergen seems to reinvent herself for Mary and Tim showing such depth and emotion that I was really floored since I had always regarded her as something beautiful to look at and amusing. But in Mary and Tim it's like I had never seen Candice Bergen before she was so new and so different and so remarkable. As always I could not take my eyes off her even when the young stud was parading around in hardly anything at all. That actor, Thomas McCarthy, is excellent and convincing but he's no match for the way Bergen dominates the film and the story. She is a gem and a treasure for achieving what she does in this film.
