Julia
Celebrating remarkable acting work is a must when a singular performance is witnessed that makes a lasting impression. In the case of the tour-de-force turn by actress Ashley C. Williams in the powerful new rape-revenge flick “Julia” it’s a case of pointing a spotlight on something movie goers have never seen before.
