Although he’s previously worked with such directors as Terrence Malick and Baz Luhrmann, Ben Mendelsohn‘s career has been given a major boost this past few years. After breaking out in the Aussie crime thriller Animal Kingdom, the actor has a three-punch of films debuting with The Dark Knight Rises, Killing Them Softly and the TIFF premiere The Place Beyond the Pines.

Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
