Performance of the Day

Film: "Waiting to Exhale"
Character: Bernadette 'Bernie' Harris
Year: 1995

Angela Bassett exudes grace, beauty, and... above all else, a remarkable talent for acting. In "Waiting to Exhale", Bassett plays a woman who has grown all too comfortable in her dysfunctional marriage to a man who is clearly having an affair. She faces her greatest challenge when her husband suddenly leaves her. The initial roller coaster ride of emotions are perfectly executed, especially in the pivotal car-burning scene, by Bassett. She's a strong woman, who is not gonna take it quietly.
