Jacki Weaver

Jacki Weaver was startlingly good as a ruthless crime boss in the Australian crime thriller “Animal Kingdom,” for which she received a very deserved Oscar nom. This year, she plays a mousy housewife who is clearly in denial about her obviously mentally ill husband and even more mentally ill son. It’s a fine performance but it’s not nearly as stunning as Ann Dowd in “Compliance” or even Judi Dench in “Skyfall.”
