"The real thing"

Liz Penn of The High Sign reviews Possession. She's not keen on the movie but likes Ms Ehle in it, so she's partially forgiven.

I saw Jennifer Ehle eat up the stage a few years ago in a Broadway production of Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing. The real thing is just what she is: a big, juicy, radiant redhead, straight out of a Julia Margaret Cameron photograph from the 1860s, whose face seems full of secrets that far outstrip the complexity of the role she's playing.
