Performance of the Day

Film: "Hilary and Jackie"
Character: Jackie
Year: 1999

Emily Watson gave a powerhouse performance in the true story of concert cellist, Jacqueline du Pre. The story centers around two sisters (Watson and Rachel Griffiths) who are musically gifted; Jackie on cello and her sister Hilary on the flute. Jacqueline develops MS and is forced to stop performing. It's a touching and deep performance and Watson (who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar) delivered.
