The Best Of Cate Blanchett

CATE Blanchett is one of the most skilful actors of the last twenty years. A masterful performer who elevates any film she appears in, whether it be serious dramas such as Babel and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button or fantasy flicks like Cinderella and Thor: Ragnarok.
