One reviewer has this to say about the English actress Rachel Weisz in
_Denial_ (2016):

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

An Australian reviewer puts it more strongly:

"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:


"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
