"Christopher Plummer really deserves a Best Actor Oscar for Barrymore… it’s the role — and the performance — of a lifetime, and he plays every color, nuance, mood shift and variety of vocal power and body language in his enormous range. The artistry leaves you with your mouth wide open... stunned and cheering. So bring out the Oscar. " - Rex Reed, New York Observer
