One quiet pleasure of movies comes in recognizing familiar character actors—those reliable performers who make bad films tolerable, good ones exceptional. This is a bountiful period for that pastime; see Ossie Davis in Joe Versus the Volcano, Hector Elizondo in Pretty Woman, James Earl Jones in The Hunt for Red October, Elizabeth McGovern in The Handmaid's Tale and A Shock to the System, Annette O'Toole in Love at Large.
