One reviewer has this to say about the English actress Rachel Weisz in
_Denial_ (2016):
https://theplaylist.net/denial-rachel-weisz-fails-cautionary-tale-age-trump-toronto-review-20160912/

"It’s incredibly hard to believe her New York born accent she creates for
the character."


An Australian reviewer puts it more strongly:
https://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/nightlife/cj/8518964

"For a start - but gratingly present throughout - there is her
ear-torturing attempt at a Queens accent; it's the aural equivalent of
drinking cat piss."

Sounded fine to me:
