Brendan Fraser delivers unflinchingly powerful performance in “The Whale”
A force of raw vulnerability, “The Whale” submerges audiences in a tale of a man’s struggles with grief and regret. A powerhouse cast, led by Brendan Fraser as Charlie, guides us through the deep, emotionally-charged and unfortunately, grotesque depths of this adaptation of the stage play. “The Whale” is a powerful film that expertly adapts the stage play to the big screen. His performance is both powerful and nuanced, evoking empathy and understanding in the audience as they witness Charlie’s struggles. Overall, “The Whale” is a powerful, moving film that is anchored — or rather carried — by outstanding performances from its cast and expert direction from Aronofsky, especially Fraser’s masterful performance.themiamihurricane.com
