The Coen Brother's A Serious Man. Drastically underappreciated, I think.

In memoriam, name that movie:
In the first 24hrs, you also have to name the character.

The character he's playing, or the actor's name?

Would have to cheat and look up the character's name, though.

That's only 1/2 point then. One of his better roles, IMO. Worth a watch just to see these two work together:

Seriously? I'll do it if you want...

Here's a new type of challenge: How old is the actress in these shots?

You do NOT have to name the film or actress, just give her age.

For the official answer I am taking the film's year of release minus her birth year, both as shown in the IMDB.

No peeking in the IMDB! You need to guess by her appearance alone.

Answer:

Spoiler!

Nah, give him the whole point. I thought someone surely would know who the infamous Owney Madden was. Hoskins breathed an amazing life into a sociopathic gangster who's history was well known.

Positive or negative, that is still not right. In fact, it's wrong!

Assuming that someone gets it right, will our next challenge be to guess what she had for breakfast on the morning of the shoot?

Nope. Luckily there are a limited number of plausible integers.
