A happy 38 to Ben Foster today, who'll probably always be the Stanley to Gillian Anderson's Blanche in my mind (I was a big big huge fan of the stage adaptation of Streetcar here in New York a couple years back in case you missed it, going to see it three times, a total freak occurrence when it comes to me and theater) no matter what other goodness he serves up and he's already served up some goodness this year - I thought he gave a very fine little performance in Leave No Trace (read my review here), Debra Granik's latest.
Anyway these shots here are from his latest movie called Galveston - anybody watch it yet? I believe it's streaming (yup here it is on Amazon). Galveston was directed by Mélanie Laurent and co-stars Elle Fanning and it's a "hit-man plans revenge on those who wronged him" movie. This movie completely slipped past me, I don't remember hearing anything about it until last week, and yet it appears to've gotten some good reviews. Ben Foster is a big fuzzy treasure, bless.
