Fantasia 2020: ‘The Columnist’ is a revenge story we’ve all fantasized about | Awesome Friday!

The Columnist

Katja Herbers (probably best known for her recurring role on HBO’s Westworld) is fantastic as Femke, particularly in the scenes where she confronts the trolls she has managed to track down and asks them to their faces about the things they say online. Herbers navigates the changes in Femke’s demeanour as she moves from timid but upset to confident and furious. There is casual malice underlying everything she says in the scenes mentioned above, and a palpable sense of relief she exudes whilst doing what she does makes the scenes a delight to watch.
