Christabel or Chucky?

Village Voice's review of Possession isn't that positive, but J. Hoberman comes up with an unusual metaphor:
Perhaps [Jeremy Northam]'s been hypnotized by the round-faced, green-cloaked poetess Jennifer Ehle, whose gracious smile and wide-eyed twinkle as Christabel LaMotte have the uncanny animation of a young girl's favorite doll come to life.

That's meant to be a compliment. I think.
