Lots of Bachelorette reviews are now popping up, which you can pick and choose from by searching “Kirsten Dunst” on Google News. I just came across this one from Time which has a nice bit about Kirsten that I thought was particularly worth posting:

The best reason to see Bachelorette is Dunst, once a child star (Interview with the Vampire) with an uncanny ability to project maturity, now an actress with an ever-increasing range. In 2010 she was touching as a sunshine girl turned victim of domestic violence in the underrated All Good Things. Last year she had the key role in the acclaimed but not-exactly-multiplex-material Melancholia as the prescient depressive Justine. She’s done comedy before (Dick, How to Lose Friends & Alienate People) but it hasn’t been her specialty. Here she’s funny in a wonderfully old-fashioned way; you can imagine her teasing the hell out of Cary Grant. Regan is not just a stone cold fox (in the elegant white dress she wears for most of the movie she’d make Hitchcock swoon), she’s actually stone cold. “Chinatown!” she snaps at the hapless Asian wedding party planner before dressing her down for some minor canapé infraction. Regan learns a little and softens a smidge in the course of Bachelorette, but Dunst brings an edge even to that. I bet Bette Davis would love this Jezebel; I know I did.
