Travers: 'Dragon Tattoo' Star Deserves Oscar Nomination


It's almost Halloween, and there's Saw 3D and Paranormal Activity 2 to scare the bejeezus out of you. But Peter Travers recommends seeing The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the last of the three Swedish films based on Stieg Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. David Fincher (The Social Network) is working on an English-language Girl film, but the Swedish versions feature the dazzling Noomi Rapace (whose assumed surname means "bird of prey" in French) playing the now-legendary Lisbeth Salander character — Travers even recommends her for an Oscar nomination.
