• In Wendy and Lucy, a harder-edged Marley & Me for the downwardly mobile, the actress proves astonishing.

1 SHE'S A MASTER MORPHER
Playing Wendy, a destitute woman driving to Alaska when her beloved dog Lucy goes missing, Williams simply becomes the character, never resorting to flashy tricks or tics.

2 CLOTHES DON'T MAKE THE WOMAN
No fancy costume changes for Williams, who wears the same grungy duds most of the film.

3 SHE WAS IN DAWSON'S CREEK
Proving that someday I may be writing similar encomiums to Gossip Girl alums.
