rebecca hall james blakeThe last few years have seen Rebecca Hall take on some excellent roles, with The Town, her standout performance in Nicole Holofcener’s Please Give and her recent leading turn in The Awakening bringing her an ever-increasing audience.

Her next big screen role is set to be as Beth Raymer in Stephen Frear’s Lay the Favourite which, from what I’ve read, is about sex and gambling and sees Hall line up with Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Vince Vaughn. Until then we have this little gem to tide us over – a music video for James Blake’s cover of Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’ which features the actress going through the highs and lows of a relationship in the space of three minutes.

Seb Edwards directed the video and his command of lighting and space presents the perfect arena for Hall’s performance. The song didn’t send chills through me but I loved watching  the emotional flux at play.

The excellent music blog Cover Me Songs pointed this one out to me, and thanks be.
