Natalie Portman

Now i know that this movie has been out for a while now but i just recently saw it. "Garden State" is a great movie. One of the reasons are; I never had any respect for Natalie Portman as an actress before i saw this movie. I think she did a terrific job. She was funny without trying to be. Truly a new style of acting out of her. One particular scene that i thought she did wonderful in was the very end when they are sitting in the airport terminal. Yes i know it was a very cliche scene, but she did an extraordinary job. So well it gave me goosebumps. It takes some good acting to do that. what did everyone else think?

I think that you're probably gonna get some posts telling you that you should have searched for one of the already existing threads about Garden State Or Natalie Portman, but I'm just gonna post pics because she's so effin' purty!

I don't think there's been a good discussion on these boards about Natalie Portman yet.

She is a beauty. I especially like the picture of her next to the Senator from NY.

One of the best, if not the best, films last year in my opinion. To each their own I guess.
