Critics Picks December 9

Eddie Kaye Thomas in the role of George Horvath,
Cast as the young clerk on the rise at a beautiful Hungarian shop in the 1930s, Eddie Kaye Thomas gets the romantic lead and plays it with a full heart, while honoring the period and the nationality. But the standout aspect of Thomas’s performance is the way he listens to his fellow actors—as if their next words were the most important. He makes the audience want to listen, too.

Edward Tournier in the role of Ted,
A delight as a physically and emotionally starved “lost boy” who dreams of pork and love, Edward Tournier is thoroughly entertaining without, ahem, hogging the stage. He calibrates his performance to the size of the Ahmanson, radiating sweet sadness and exuberance in equal measure.
