Always making unexpected choices

Joaquin Phoenix is always such a mystery to me. We never read much about his personal life, and he is somewhat obscure in interviews. It all gives him a real layer of mystery on top of the good looks and acting chops. I loved his last turn as Johnny Cash in Stand By your Man — I never thought Joaquin would be able to pull that one off. That’s why I love this newest role of his as a tormented dad in Reservation Road. It’s great to see him in a slightly more grown up way, not being a Roman prince or country singer. Just a dad dealing with a terrible tragedy.
