Her head is full of ideas, both about the poem and about the Professor, and gradually, with a charming but disconcerting mixture of tactlessness and wisdom, sympathy and rudeness, unexpectedly brilliant insights and unlikely theories, she begins to bring him, slowly, out of his shell and back to life. Funny and moving, and an excellent showcase for a smart young actress.
