Jude Law is known throughout the film industry in both England and Hollywood as one of the most talented actors of his generation and he recently provided support for this claim with his sensational acting performance in the movie "Dom Hemingway". In the movie he plays the title character and his performance is paired with his excellent chemistry with 'straight' man Dickie played by Richard E. Grant.
He truly sinks his teeth into this meaty role and takes advantage of the opportunity to show multiple dimensions of his character, Dom Hemingway'. His character is a person who is always in the company of the 'wrong people' and performs some horrible acts toward others. However, the charm of Jude Law comes out through this character and combined with his command and usage of the English language he is able to connect with viewers and convey the different sides of the character which make Dom Hemingway appealing to viewers.
His accomplishment of making the character appealing is probably one of the most exceptional acting successes of the movie as it provides the viewing audience with the ultimate dilemma of black humour. The viewer feels pain upon witnessing his character's actions toward other people but is also at odds with themselves because Jude Law's charm and acting range makes it such that viewers want to laugh out loud but doing so almost makes them feel guilty.
He truly embraces every aspect of this character and digs deep within the character to show the multiple dimensions that exist within people, even those who on their face are not the most admirable in our society.
Jude Law in the role Dom Hemingway distinguished himself admirably with a sensational acting performance and showed why he has been twice nominated for Academy Awards and will likely receive another nomination for his exceptional portrayal of the lead character.
