Tilda Swinton is amazing in Orlando as the son of Queen Elizabeth I who lives for 400 years, the first half as a man, the second half as a woman. Her transformation and the nuances of her facial expressions are subtle and convincing. She starts out gawky and awkward and slowly gains grace as the years pass. It’s extremely believable.
