Scarlett Johansson Is ‘Enchanting’ In ‘Room With A View’

While her husband Ryan Reynolds man-in-a-box film scored big with a $3.2 million buy at Sundance this weekend, Scarlett Johansson had success of her own opening on Broadway on Sunday. (Word has it the Buried star, jetted out of Utah to catch his wife’s debut.)

Joansson steps out of her modeling persona to play the plain Catherine in the Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge opposite Tony award winner Liev Shreiber.  Scarjo received a showering of positive reviews from surprised critics who contrasted her to her stunt casting predecessors. So she is better than the widely panned Julia Roberts in Three Days of Rain and the mediocre Katie Holmes in All My Sons, which is good, but critics go on to call her “enchanting” and “convincing.” I for one am interested in seeing the Viki, Christina, Barcelona actress with a Brooklyn accent.

Hopefully the star-studded audience, including Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts, also enjoyed her performance.
