An interesting talk with Benedict Cumberbatch about his role in Jane Campion’s The Power of The Dog. He plays Paul, the rude, apparently malevolent cowboy who haunts the life of his brother’s wife and her son. This is a role with many layers and hidden sensibility. And Benedict knows how to play it.

The Power of the Dog: Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.
