FilmMaker Magazine’s Jason Guerrasio talks about Melissa Leo

FilmMaker Magazine’s columnist, Jason Guerrasio, says:
Best Performance
Melissa Leo in The Space Between. Leo plays a grumpy airline stewardess who after her flight is grounded on 9/11 has to watch over one of her passengers, a Pakistani-American boy. But when she learns that his father works at the World Trade Center she decides to take him back to New York.
Leo portrays the character of Montine with aching despair as we learn the deep-seeded demons that have driven her away from most of the people who love her (and into the bottle). It’s a tour-de-force performance that rivals that of her Oscar nominated role in Frozen River.
