As Tracy, Jennifer Ehle is glamorous and she does not shun the "star actress" stature of the role as written. She is continually referred to as a goddess and Tom Rands eye-catching gowns eloquently emphasize the point. She is cold, dignified and remote – but Miss Ehle accurately links this remoteness to a genuine soul-searching underneath. For Tracy is re-thinking her life and the arrival of the two other men is a mere catalyst. But Ehle sustains the warmth underneath the cold exterior. She creates a complex character who continually fascinates because of her delicate shifts in emotion as she sheds her saintliness to become a human being.
