Deadspin: Best Performance Given To Alexander Skarsgard

Over at Deadspin, movie columnist Tim Grierson has given Alexander his Best Performance in a summer movie Award for Monroe in “The Diary of a Teenage Girl“.

Best Performance: Playing a lecherous creep is easy—playing a lecherous creep you almost feel sorry for is hard. In the acclaimed 1970s drama The Diary of a Teenage GirlAlexander Skarsgård is terrific as Monroe, the boyfriend of Kristen Wiig’s hippie-ish mother to precocious, awkward teen Minnie (an excellent Bel Powley). Soon, Monroe begins a clandestine relationship with the sexually inexperienced daughter, requiring Skarsgård to walk a delicate line between full-blown skuzzball and deeply troubled loser. As its title suggests, Teenage Girlchiefly focuses on Minnie’s coming of age, but it’s Skarsgård who’s instrumental in powering the story, giving us a man who’s never quite aware of the damage he’s doing to this young woman because he’s too busy being absorbed in his own selfishness.

If you are lucky there still may be time to see “Diary” at the cinema, but here in the UK it is disappearing fast.
