Yeah and all his castmates + the director in the special features agree on how gifted he is

...but he still looks like he doesn't know what he's doing on the set, he still moves his lips like an annoying kid in any situation like there's some deep thinking involved - he's very much like he was in Potter, even if the role requires more restraint. And it's just me but I'm still having a hard time seeing him as a father. But the suit does make him look more adult!
....okay there are some moments, but his overall performance, I'd say...average?
With that said I did like the film quite a lot. Mostly for the cinematography and the old-fashioned ghost story, the slow pacing which lets the story develops, the eery tension...
