Born into a distinguished acting family, Vanessa Redgrave knew a lot about acting technique when she started making films in the 1960s. Three decades later she has shown that an actress can improve with age. In his review of A Month by the Lake (1995), Roger Ebert sees Redgrave “at the absolute peak of physical and mental perfection”. No one had any idea of what kind of a woman was in the photographs in the park in Blowup (1966). Her rich auburn hair was long, her physique lean, her countenance inscrutable. Three decades later a Redgrave who takes the pictures has hair that is short, the auburn shade muted. The physique is still lean and it is strong from the work it has taken to keep it that way. And the countenance is a lot easier to read. Add expertise with body language and a superb sense of timing and here is a comedienne who should still be carrying films when she is in her 90s. —IMDb
She shames most actresses and actors. Her work is as detailed as Streep's but Redgrave is much more lyrical and poetic.
Like Roger Ebert said about her: "She can do no wrong. Everything she does is just magic".
Superb actress and i greatly admire her political conviction and courage- against the cruel and powerful tide, on behalf of those who need support
