Performer: Max Pomeranc

From: “Searching for Bobby Fischer”

“One of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen is Max Pomeranc as the young boy in ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer.’ Something about watching a child and his ability to be honest and his desperation for honesty even in the midst of all the adults surrounding them—which is essentially what that movie is about—and the performance itself is so present and exists on its own even today.”

An Oscar nominee for “Brokeback Mountain,” Jake Gyllenhaal appeared Off-Broadway in “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet” and can be seen in “End of Watch.”
