My top 20 Michael Kitchen roles:
14. Mr. Brownlow in Oliver Twist (1999)
From the Washington Post:
Michael Kitchen, as Mr. Brownlow, offers an even more brilliant performance, but an understated one. With exquisite control, he uses every muscle to convey a man whose pain is deep and whose kindness is pure. Kitchen, a stalwart of British theater and film–you may remember him as the husband left by Francesa Annis for Robson Green in “Reckless”–is truly superb.
