All you need to know about Elizabeth Banks, Steven Spielberg and ‘The Color Purple’

If you’re going to call someone out, it helps to do a little homework. Actress-director was reminded of this after commenting on ’s record when it comes to directing films with female leads.

Accepting the Women in Film Crystal Award for excellence in film Wednesday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the “Power Rangers” actress singled out Spielberg in her remarks lamenting the state of Hollywood movies that focus on telling women’s stories.

“I went to ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Jaws’ and every movie Steven Spielberg ever made, and by the way, he’s never made a movie with a female lead,” Banks said. “Sorry, Steven. I don’t mean to call [you] out, but it’s true.”

While Banks’ criticism was not quite off base, it also was not quite accurate.

According to the Wrap, an audience member countered Banks’ claim by naming Spielberg’s “The Color Purple,” but the actress moved on in her speech. In Deadline’s recap of the events, Banks responded to the interjection to get clarification on whether Spielberg directed “The Color Purple” before moving on, when someone in the audience replied that he hadn’t.

Except Spielberg did direct “The Color Purple.”

As expected, Twitter was unforgiving that Banks did not remember that Spielberg had directed the 1985 movie that marked the film debut of both and Oprah Winfrey. Those who tried to defend Banks proceeded to make things worst by claiming that “The Color Purple” was a flop.

Here is a quick rundown the the facts about “The Color Purple” and Spielberg’s record with female-lead films.

What is ‘The Color Purple’?

The movie is based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, which tells the story of Celie and her life as a black woman in the rural South, struggling with issues including racism, misogyny, poverty and domestic violence. Celie’s relationships with other women help her endure her loss and oppression. In addition to Goldberg and Winfrey, the cast included Danny Glover, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar and Akosua Busia. Spielberg also was a producer on the picture.

Was the movie a flop?

No. “The Color Purple” grossed $94 million at the domestic box office during its initial run, making it the fourth highest-grossing film in 1985 (after “Back to the Future,” “Rambo: First Blood Part II” and “Rocky IV”).

The film has grossed $98 million in its lifetime.

How was it received?

It opened to generally positive reviews. Charles Champlin, The Times’ arts editor in 1985, noted that “those who had not read the novel have been unrestrained in their enthusiasm for the film; those who read and loved the book have found the film’s changes in tone and substance not to their liking.”

The Times’ original review wasn’t completely impressed with Spielberg as director, but it did praise the movie’s cast.

“Whatever the faults of Spielberg’s artistic choices … he has collected an almost-perfect cast, and what they have done under his direction is undeniable,” it reads.

But there were plenty of critics who loved it. The Chicago Sun-Times’ Roger Ebert called “The Color Purple” “the year's best film,” while the Chicago Tribune’s Gene Siskel ranked the “triumphantly emotional and brave adaptation” as one of Spielberg’s best works.

So ‘Purple’ won lots of awards?

Not exactly. “The Color Purple” was nominated for 11 Academy Awards — including best picture, and acting nominations for Goldberg, Winfrey and Avery — but came away with nothing. Spielberg wasn’t even in the running for the directing Oscar.

However, he did win the prize for outstanding directorial achievement in motion pictures from the Directors Guild of America, making him the first director to win that award who had not been nominated for an Oscar. Goldberg won the Golden Globe for lead actress in a drama.

So is Spielberg is off the hook?

Not completely. Obviously, it cannot be said that Spielberg has never made a movie with a female lead.

In addition to “The Color Purple,” Spielberg directed 1974’s “The Sugarland Express,” starring . And while 2016’s “The BFG” might be considered more a vehicle for star Mark Rylance, the film also starred Ruby Barnhill. He’s also featured a handful of memorable female characters in his pictures, including Dr. Ellie Sattler in “Jurassic Park” and Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

But that’s a fairly slim list considering Spielberg has directed 30 features in a film career spanning more than 40 years.

What about Banks?

Banks, for her part, has since acknowledged her mistake and apologized.

“It was not my intention to dismiss the import of the iconic ‘The Color Purple,’” she said on Twitter. “Those who have the privilege and honor of directing and producing films should be held to account for our mistakes, whether it’s about diversity or inaccurate statements.”

Elizabeth Banks’ 10 Best Films (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

Elizabeth Banks has had a successful film career, first taking on roles in the late '90, before later gaining recognition in The Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect series, and most recently directing, producing, and writing a 2019 remake of Charlie's Angels. Because of this, we thought we'd look at how all of her movies stack up. But rather than sharing our personal favorites, we're turning to the fans at IMDb for answers.

RELATED: Elizabeth Banks’ 10 Best Films (According To IMDb)

The popular movie and TV show website has assigned every Banks movie a star rating. This score is based on the votes of registered users on a scale of 1 to 10, and it's what we'll be using to count down to the best.

With that said, it's time to head to the theater and let Banks' films begin.

10 The Hunger Games (2012) - 84%

The first Hunger Games film came to the big screen in 2012. With a stellar cast, emotional story, and layered plot based on the popular novel by Suzanne Collins, the movie had a lot going for it.

The opening film installment tells of a dystopian future where every year, kids from across the nation of Panem are selected to compete in an annual televised fight-to-the-death known as the Hunger Games. When Prim is chosen, her sister Katniss volunteers in her place. In addition to fighting, however, Katniss is required to present a good image to viewers alongside a boy who once helped feed her family, Peeta.

Banks took on the role of Effie, a wealthy Capitol woman who helps to prepare the pair for the Games. Her effervescent personality shone throughout.

9 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) - 85%

Banks hasn't limited herself to live-action films. In 2014, she voiced a character in The LEGO Movie, and in 2019, she reprised her role.

RELATED: 10 Plot Holes In The Lego Movie Franchise

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part has the town of Bricksburg transforming into a post-apocalyptic wasteland after the Duplo bricks arrive on scene. Though most of the Master Builders believe that the mysterious Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi is trying to unite the Duplo and LEGO bricks together through marriage, Wyldstyle isn't so sure.

The fierce and feisty Wyldstyle is played by none other than Banks. The colorful fun of the film left viewers impressed, even if it wasn't quite as fresh as the original.

8 The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) - 85%

This 2005 comedy tells of a middle-aged electronics store worker who has yet to fall in love and lose his virginity. Though his friends hope to change his status, he isn't as sure of their pursuits.

While Steve Carell plays the main character, Andy, Banks plays Beth, a bookstore clerk who becomes interested in him.

Critics found that the 40 Year Old Virgin's funny and surprisingly sweet story was comedy gold.

7 Slither (2006) - 86%

This 2006 sci-fi horror comedy tells of the small town of Wheelsy where nothing big ever happens — well, nothing except for the arrival of an alien who hopes to wipe out humanity. It’s up to Sheriff Bill Pardy to track him down.

Banks plays Starla, the wife of a wealthy resident who gets infected by the extraterrestrial creature.

Though Slither flopped at the box office, audiences loved the blend of creepy and comical. The cast helped elevate this vibe.

6 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) - 89%

Banks reprised her role as Effie for the 2013 sequel to The Hunger Games.

In the series' second installment, Katniss and Peeta attempt to enjoy their lives as victors of the games. However, as the two continue to become a symbol of rebellion, it's only a matter of time before President Snow puts them in their place by pulling them back into the arena.

The gorgeous visuals and genuine performances had fans eager for the third film.

5 Spider-Man (2002) - 90%

Though Spider-Man has had many film reboots over the years, this could have never happened without a kick-off, which came in the form of the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man films in the early 2000s.

RELATED: The Avengers: 10 Most Shameless Things Spider-Man Has Ever Done

This first film has teen Peter Parker gaining superpowers after being bitten by a genetically-engineered spider. This leads him to attempt balancing high school life with his city-saving efforts.

Banks takes on the role of Daily Bugle secretary, Betty Brant. The action and charisma of the film had it easily earning a second.

4 Love & Mercy (2014) - 90%

This 2014 biographical drama retells the story of the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and his attempt to push through mental illness. To best display this narrative, the film jumps between two time periods, one in the 1960s while he creates the iconic Pet Sounds album, and another in the 1980s during his therapy treatment.

Banks plays Melinda Ledbetter in the '80s, a woman who falls for Brian but is also threatened by the controlling dynamic between him and Dr. Eugene Landy.

Fans felt that the film expertly honored Wilson's legacy and that the unconventional structure served its purpose.

3 Spider-Man 2 (2004) - 93%

Yes, you guessed right. Banks reprised her role as Betty Brant in the 2004 Spider-Man sequel.

This time around, Dr. Otto Octopus seeks to get revenge on the world after accidentally killing his wife in a nuclear explosion and becoming a metal tentacled cyborg. It's up to Peter to overcome his doubts, figure out his love life, and save the city yet again.

Fans were pleasantly surprised to see this installment hold to the feel of the original while upping the story and the special effects.

2 The LEGO Movie (2014) - 96%

The original LEGO Movie recounts the story of a Minifigure construction worker named Emmet, who is content with his ordinary life. However, after accidentally being deemed the prophesied "Special," Emmet must summon the courage to save his kind from the evil Lord Business.

The humor-packed script, stylized animations, and thought-out story easily earned The LEGO Movie a sequel. As mentioned, Banks played Wyldstyle, who first meets Emmet during this adventure.

1 Catch Me If You Can (2002) - 96%

The number one spot on this list of Elizabeth Bank's best movies is Catch Me If You Can.

Based on the real life of Frank Abagnale, this crime movie follows a young man who cons his way into an interesting life and millions of dollars before his 19th birthday.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Abagnale while Tom Hanks portrays the man who tries to track him down. Banks shows up in a supporting role, playing a bank teller who flirts with Abagnale.

Elizabeth Banks is an Emmy Award-nominated actress and director known for her work in '30 Rock,' 'W.,' 'Pitch Perfect' and 'The Hunger Games.'

Who Is Elizabeth Banks?

Actress Elizabeth Banks has pursued a prolific film career with roles in projects like Spider-Man, Invincible, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, W. and the blockbuster The Hunger Games. She has also worked in television, earning Emmy nominations for her guest roles on 30 Rock and Modern Family. A co-founder of Brownstone Productions, Banks made her big-screen directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015 and later helmed a reboot of Charlie's Angels.

Early Life and Career

Elizabeth Banks was born Elizabeth Maresal Mitchell on February 10, 1974, in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. During her childhood, she enjoyed the outdoors and was active in sports. She broke her leg while sliding into third base during a softball match and afterward turned to theater, enjoying the camaraderie and teamwork to be found in performance. Mitchell went on to earn her B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, graduating magna cum laude, and then earned her M.F.A. from the American Conservatory Theater from San Francisco.

Banks lived in New York for a time and acquired on-screen experience in Gotham-based TV productions like Sex and the City and Third Watch. She made her movie debut in the gender-twisting drama Surrender Dorothy and starred in the 2000 John Singleton remake of Shaft before changing her last name to Banks. (She didn't want to be confused with another thespian named Elizabeth Mitchell who later starred in the series Lost and V.)

Movies and TV Shows

'Wet Hot American Summer,' 'Spider-Man,' 'Catch Me If You Can'

Moving to Los Angeles, California, from New York City, Banks would land roles in scores of films that spanned the gamut from comedy to drama, horror to sci-fi/fantasy. After appearing in the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer (2001), she played Daily Bugle newspaper secretary Betty Brant in Spider-Man (2002), followed by a turn later that year as a bank employee in Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can

Many other notable roles followed, including parts in The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Invincible (2006), Meet Bill (2008), Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), Definitely, Maybe (2008) and a reprisal of her Brant role in Spider-Man's 2004 and 2007 sequels.

'W.,' 'Scrubs,' '30 Rock'

In 2008, Banks starred as First Lady Laura Bush in the Oliver Stone-directed, George W. Bush biopic W. The following year she returned to her guest role on the medical comedy Scrubs, in which she had portrayed Dr. Kim Briggs in 2006. In addition to her movie work, Banks continued on TV with a recurring 30 Rock role as conservative news commentator Avery Jessup, who becomes romantically involved with Alec Baldwin's character, Jack Donaghy. Banks received 2011 and 2012 Emmy nominations for her work.

'The Hunger Games'

Banks appeared in a whopping six films in 2012, including People Like Us, The Details, What to Expect When You're Expecting and Man on a Ledge. Her biggest project that year was the screen adaptation of the bestselling Suzanne Collins series The Hunger Games. The film, starring Jennifer Lawrence, featured Banks as Effie Trinket, a capitol representative with a particularized accent who sports brightly-hued wigs, face makeup and extravagant attire. Games grossed more than $690 million worldwide, and Banks was cast in its sequels, Catching Fire (2013), Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014), and Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015).

'Love & Mercy,' 'The Lego Movie,' 'Magic Mike XXL,' 'Modern Family'

In 2014 Banks starred as Melinda Ledbetter in the acclaimed biopic Love & Mercy, about the life of The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, and also provided voice work for The Lego Movie. The following year she appeared in Magic Mike XXL and gained another Emmy nomination for her recurring role of Sal on the hit sitcom Modern Family. Banks also revisited her old role of Lindsay for the Netflix miniseries Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (2015) and Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (2017).

'Power Rangers,' 'The Happytime Murders,' 'Brightburn'

Also in 2017 Banks co-starred in the latest version of Power Rangers, as the traitorous Rita Repulsa. After sharing the screen with Melissa McCarthy and a series of puppets in 2018's The Happytime Murders, she returned to voice work for 2019's The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. That year she also featured prominently in Brightburn, as the mother of an alien child with terrible powers.

'Pitch Perfect' Productions and Directing

Banks has worked behind the scenes as well. She started the production company Brownstone with her husband Max Handelman, and the two have produced Surrogates (2009) and the Pitch Perfect movies (2012, 2015 and 2017), three comedic outings about an all-women's a cappella group starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.

Banks made her big-screen directorial debut with the second Pitch Perfect film, which earned around $285 million worldwide, more than doubling the gross of its predecessor. She also directed and acted in the short Just a Little Heart Attack as part of the Go Red for Women campaign, which educates viewers on heart disease.

'Charlie's Angels'

Taking on a big load, Banks signed up to co-write, direct, produce and act in a 2019 reboot of Charlie's Angels, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the crime-fighting trio. Although the film underwhelmed at the box office during its opening weekend, Banks insisted she was proud of the final product.

Husband

Banks married film producer and sportswriter Max Handelman in 2003, and together they have two sons, Felix and Magnus, both born via surrogate.

Elizabeth Banks (born February 10, 1974) is an American actress who plays Miri in Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Zack and Miri[]

Originally, Rosario Dawson was cast as Miri. However, when filming was moved from November 2007 to January 2008 (to accomodate Seth Rogen's schedule), Dawson was no longer available due to her commitment to filming Eagle Eye with Steven Spielberg. A short list of six alternate actresses was drawn up; because it was alphabetical, Banks' name was at the top. When Seth Rogen saw the list he warmly endorsed having Banks play the role.[1] According to Banks, she went to Kevin Smith's house and told him that she would like to play the part, and she was hired.[2]

Smith is very enthusiastic about the job she did, claiming,

Quote1.png

She's hands down the best actress I've ever worked with. She gives you so many choices in the editing room, delivers the exact same lines, changes it up each take just a little bit in terms of delivery, [...] When you're sitting there cutting the movie together, you can always count on a fantastic reaction from her. You can find it. It's in the footage.[1]

Quote2.png

Quotes[]

When asked to compare the experience of making Zack and Miri Make a Porno to what she expected, Banks replied:

Quote1.png

I had no expectations of what it was going to be like. [...] So I knew – I will say this – that Seth and I would get along gangbusters because we always have and I knew that we would improvise a lot which we did. I knew that Kevin [Smith] would be amazing to be around which he is. He just runs a really friendly and relaxed set full of his friends and has everyone that makes him comfortable around. So I knew all of that was going to work. I knew that it was going to be really fucking cold in Pittsburgh and it was. What else did I know? Other than that I didn't know much. I knew we were making a really funny movie. It's actually funnier than I realized.[3]

Quote2.png

When discussing Kevin Smith, Banks said:

Quote1.png

Kevin writes real, hilarious women better than just about anybody. He finds that balance between raunchy and daring yet feminine and genuine which is rare and a true talent.[2]

Quote2.png

Biography[]

Banks was born Elizabeth Maresal Mitchell in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. As a young child, she was a contestant on the Nickelodeon game show Finders Keepers. She graduated from Pittsfield High School in 1992 and is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (1996). In 1998 she completed schooling at the American Conservatory Theater. In 2003, Banks married Max Handelman, who had been her boyfriend since college. She converted to Judaism upon marrying him.[4]

She and her husband Max own a production company called Brownstone Productions, which is producing the upcoming movie Surrogates.[3]

All you need to know about Elizabeth Banks, Steven Spielberg and ‘The Color Purple’

If you’re going to call someone out, it helps to do a little homework. Actress-director was reminded of this after commenting on ’s record when it comes to directing films with female leads.

Accepting the Women in Film Crystal Award for excellence in film Wednesday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the “Power Rangers” actress singled out Spielberg in her remarks lamenting the state of Hollywood movies that focus on telling women’s stories.

“I went to ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Jaws’ and every movie Steven Spielberg ever made, and by the way, he’s never made a movie tim bohen penny stocks a female lead,” Banks said. “Sorry, Steven. I don’t mean to call [you] out, but it’s true.”

While Banks’ criticism was not quite off base, it also was not quite accurate.

According to the Wrap, an audience member countered Banks’ claim by naming Spielberg’s “The Color Purple,” but the actress moved on in her speech. In Deadline’s recap of the events, Banks responded to the interjection to get clarification on whether Spielberg directed “The Color Purple” before moving on, when someone in the audience replied that he hadn’t.

Except Spielberg did direct “The Color Purple.”

As expected, Twitter was unforgiving that Banks did not remember that Spielberg had directed the 1985 movie that marked the film debut of both and Oprah Winfrey. Those who tried to defend Banks proceeded to make things worst by claiming that “The Color Purple” was a flop.

Here is a quick rundown the the facts about “The Color Purple” and Spielberg’s record with female-lead films.

What is capital one platinum mastercard guide to benefits Color Purple’?

The movie is based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, which tells the story of Celie and her life as a black woman in the rural South, struggling with issues including racism, misogyny, poverty and domestic violence. Celie’s relationships with other women help her endure her loss and oppression. In addition to Goldberg and Winfrey, the cast included Danny Glover, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar and Akosua Busia. Spielberg also was a producer on the picture.

Was the movie a flop?

No. “The Color Purple” grossed $94 million at the domestic box office during its initial run, making it the fourth highest-grossing film in 1985 (after “Back to the Future,” “Rambo: First Blood Part II” and “Rocky IV”).

The film has grossed $98 million in u of m vs penn state football tickets lifetime.

How was it received?

It opened to generally positive reviews. Charles Champlin, The Times’ arts editor in 1985, noted that “those who had not read the novel have been unrestrained in their enthusiasm for the film; those who read and loved the book have found the film’s changes in tone and substance not to their liking.”

The Times’ original review wasn’t completely impressed with Spielberg as director, but it did praise the movie’s cast.

“Whatever the faults of Spielberg’s artistic choices … he has collected an almost-perfect cast, and what they have done under his direction is undeniable,” it reads.

But there were plenty of critics who loved it. The Chicago Sun-Times’ Roger Ebert called “The Color Purple” “the year's bbva bancomer swift code film,” while the Chicago Tribune’s Gene Siskel ranked the “triumphantly emotional and brave adaptation” as one of Spielberg’s best works.

So ‘Purple’ won lots of awards?

Not exactly. “The Color Purple” was nominated for 11 Academy Awards — including best picture, and acting nominations for Goldberg, Winfrey and Avery — but came away with nothing. Spielberg wasn’t even in the running for the directing Oscar.

However, he did win the prize for outstanding directorial list of elizabeth banks movies in motion pictures from the Directors Guild of America, making him the first director to win that award who had not been nominated for an Oscar. Goldberg won the Golden Globe for lead actress in a drama.

So is Spielberg is off the hook?

Not completely. Obviously, it cannot be said that Spielberg has never made a movie with a female lead.

In addition to “The Color Purple,” Spielberg directed 1974’s “The Sugarland Express,” starring. And while 2016’s “The BFG” might be considered more a vehicle for star Mark Rylance, the film also starred Ruby Barnhill. He’s also featured a handful of memorable female characters in his pictures, including Dr. Ellie Sattler in “Jurassic Park” and Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders list of elizabeth banks movies the Lost Ark.”

But that’s a fairly slim list considering Spielberg has directed 30 features in a film career spanning more than 40 years.

What about Banks?

Banks, for her part, has since acknowledged her mistake and apologized.

“It was not my intention to dismiss the import of the iconic ‘The Color Purple,’” she said on Twitter. “Those who have the privilege and honor of directing and producing icbae should be held to account for our mistakes, whether it’s about diversity or inaccurate statements.”

The Five Best Elizabeth Banks Movies of Her Career

Somehow it seem that a lot of people get Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams mixed up fairly often. It’s not too hard to do really when you look at one then the other, but when you put them side by side the similarities tend to fade away as the differences take over. But back to Elizabeth, she’s one of those actresses that seems to come on in a big way and then fade back for a while to do a couple of films here and there, and maybe a TV appearance, to kind of take it easy. But when she’s on she’s on, it’s all full-ahead and no stopping until the job is done and she’s satisfied that she’s done what she could to contribute to a project. On many projects she’s a welcome sight since she brings a great deal of energy to the screen and tends to play characters that are engaging and able to become a needed part of the movie.

With that being said here are some of the best movies of her career.

5. The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Andy is kind of hopeless when it comes to women, but when he meets Beth, a woman that his buddy Cal steers him towards, there’s not a lot that he needs to do in order to really win her over. The only thing he doesn’t find out about until later is that Beth is a bit freaky when they’re alone and has a very, comfortable, relationship with her shower head. Andy thankfully snaps out of his booze-induced stupor at that point and makes his way out of her apartment only to run into his buddies since they managed to sneak in as an attempt to get him back on the right track. Once they leave Cal decides to stay behind and wouldn’t you know it, he and Beth hook up.

4. The Hunger Games

You almost want to hate her character in these movies since she’s working at the behest of the government and is nothing but a fussbudget when it comes to Katniss and Peta, telling them what to do and when to do it so often that it would be a wonder that someone didn’t just tell her to buzz off in a less polite way. But as the movies go on you can see that she becomes something of a sympathetic character after a while, realizing what’s really at stake and that the government that has held people down for so long has gone way too far. The uprising that comes throughout these movies is something that was inevitable.

3. Invincible

Based around the true story of former Eagle player Vince Papale, the movie did take a lot of liberties when it came to his life and his history and even kind of botched the return that Papale became so famous for. But all in all it was a good movie since it conveyed a lot of feeling as since Rudy has been one of the few movies that people actually enjoyed in terms of it being a football film. Banks of course had to play the ride or die Giants fan, something you just don’t admit to in Philly unless you’re 100 percent sure that you can take the constant criticisms and digs that people will undoubtedly sling at you.

2. Role Models

Danny didn’t know what he wanted from life, but working in the same company for so many years wasn’t it. He wanted to stay together with his girlfriend but he messed that up too since he couldn’t help but try to do everything at the drop of a hat and forgot that people need time to actually make a decision about such things as marriage and actually spending one’s life with another person for a prolonged period of time. When he and his buddy Wheeler are forced to mentor two young boys however they begin to see a different side of life that they weren’t aware of, and in the process begin to understand that there’s more to life than what they’d originally believed.

1. Man on a Ledge

It seems fair to say that no one wants to be the person that has to talk a jumper off of a ledge since there’s a good probability that if a person has gone this far that they might actually do it. But when Banks’ character has to talk to someone that has no intention of jumping but is instead serving as a diversion and is seeking to clear his name she has more to deal with than a fake suicide attempt. The plot continues to thicken as he continues to draw attention to himself so that his accomplices can do the work they need to do in a building just opposite the one he’s in, thereby clearing his good name and pointing out the real criminal, the man that sent him away in the first place.

Something about Elizabeth just causes any film she’s in to brighten slightly when she appears.
