Review: Pay Attention to your Shakespeare in DAY TRADER because this one’s an Alan Smithee
As for Fleming, the well runs deep in this young actress on the rise. Every thought, every look is layered with subtext that settles over her like a second skin. All in her own good time. All done in such a way that she makes you wonder what she’s really thinking beneath what she chooses to show you on the surface. She’s mesmerizing.
World Premiere of Comic Noir DAY TRADER Proves Money is the Only Excuse for Giving Away Your Soul
Truth proves stranger than fiction as he implicates his daughter Juliana (the luminous Bridhid Fleming)
Day Trader: Eric Rudnick’s Roller Coaster Ride Is a Hollywood Noir
Fourteen-year-old Brighid Fleming is a rising star who ticket buyers and casting directors should keep their eyes on.
DAY TRADER WOW!
truly revelatory work by the extraordinary Fleming, transformed seemingly overnight from gifted child actress into young adult star
Theater: Eric Rudnick, ‘Day Trader’
Particularly impressive is the performance of 14-year-old Brighid Fleming as Ron’s daughter Juliana.
Review: Reitman's 'Labor Day' is lovely but weighed down by the past
Henry's flirtation with Eleanor (an excellent Brighid Fleming), the new girl in town messing with his mind and emerging libido.
Wait Until Dark
Shakman's elicited wonderful work from Brighid Fleming as young upstairs neighbor Gloria, who goes through as much of a transition as Susan. After her very different performance earlier this season in The Nether, Fleming has quickly become an actor who makes a show worth seeing due only to her participation.
BFI London Film Festival 2013 Review - Labor Day
Also special note to Brighid Fleming who plays Henry’s flirty friend Eleanor – she is a definite star of the future.
Revival of 'Wait Until Dark'
Fleming is terrific as the alternately bratty and loyal girl next door Gloria
Labor Day (2013) Film Review
In the middle of this sentimentality is a brittle and bright little subplot involving Henry and his friendship with a feisty newcomer to town (Brighid Fleming), which...is the only part of the film that has a real heartbeat. Theirs is a story you would pay to see.
'Wait Until Dark'
Gloria (Brighid Fleming) is the most fascinating supporting character, and Fleming artfully reveals her quirks.
Wait Until Dark at the Geffen October 2013
Brighid Fleming, as the brat upstairs who proves instrumental to the plot, is absolutely terrific both as a character and one who is the comic relief in this performance. The play comes to life whenever she is on stage.
BWW Reviews: Re-Adapted WAIT UNTIL DARK Offers Chilling Performances at Geffen
Also terrific is Brighid Fleming as Gloria, the precocious but likable brat upstairs, who will do anything for attention
Wait Until Dark (2013)
The 1940s setting helps, allowing Pill to play Susan as a fast-talking Howard Hawks-style broad who's just as likely to cuss out the feisty teenage girl who helps her (Brighid Fleming, performing with verve) as she is to ask her husband (Matt McTighe) with dry sarcasm whether or not he’s done playing ''I married a blind girl.
A classic talent in 'Wait Until Dark'
Beyond Pill, the standout member of the cast is Brighid Fleming, who plays Gloria, the bratty young neighbor paid by Susan's husband, Sam (Matt McTighe), to look after his wife when he's away. Gloria is almost too weird not to be true. Fleming's characterization has the provocative sharpness that's needed to revivify this kind of genre material.
BFI London Film Festival Diary Day 6: Labor Day
And the script suddenly wakes up when young actress Brighid Fleming turns up as a sort of love interest for Henry—her feisty presence enlivens the film, and the picture suddenly shifts into the gear of the Reitman of old.
London Film Festival 2013 Labor Day Review
The direction is solid, the soundtrack fine and the cinematography strong, but beyond the unusual premise, the story is one-dimensional. Frank is too nice, and his arrival too perfectly resolves all the angst and longing that Adele and Henry have been feeling for years. Apart from a wry and unexpectedly funny girl that Henry meets in town (a brilliant Brighid Fleming), and Frank’s inevitable capture by the police, nothing rubs against the grain of happiness in Labor Day.
“The Nether” – Los Angeles theater review
Iris (brilliantly played by Brighid Fleming)...Fleming is especially good—disturbingly so...
Center Theatre Group's 'The Nether' Boldly Tackles Pedophilia
Fleming is terrific, her Iris simultaneously a giddy youth and world-weary slave, giving the one performance that really works and feels like an organic part of the play.
Brighid Fleming brings a wide-eyed overzealousness to her Iris. She’s clearly an older soul than her image would lead you to believe, and Fleming plays her with a wisdom and youthfulness that complement each other.
