54 Days

“I spoke with actor Michela Carattini, recently nominated as Best Actress in a feature film for the science fiction thriller ‘54 Days’, to find out how she brought herself into and out of particular emotional states during filming…”

“I had the recent pleasure of an interview with Sydney-based actress Michela Carattini. She is fresh from a starring role in the film ‘54 Days’… There is much more to this talented actress.”
Mediasearch Film Spotlight Q&A, 2014
“Australian-American actress MICHELA CARATTINI delivers an explosive performance starring in the new apocalyptic sci-fi indie feature film, 54 DAYS…”
Screen ArtsHub, 2014
“Carattini plays the role incredibly well, showing the inner turmoil of a pregnant woman who believes she is about to die and as she deteriorates even more with time, she makes it believable to the viewer.”
UK Film Critic ‘Watch and Learn’, 2014
“Most notably Dirk, played by Gregory J Wilken, and Michelle, played by Michela Carattini. Both of whom gave very emotional performances throughout the film. It was very clear through these two characters especially, that the groups sanity teetered on the edge, seen clearly through their ability to switch from one emotional extreme to the other.”
UK Film Critic ‘Shooting Script’, 2014
“Carattini is completely believable as the cheating wife who has grown to hate her husband”
The Liberty Voice, 2014
“Although at times the dialogue can be somewhat cliché, the cast make up for any deficiencies through their superb performances. Which considering they're all stuck on the cinematic equivalent of a bare stage is quite a feat in itself. This isn't to critique the bunker though, which is so beautifully designed it's almost a character in its own right. But, to drive home the fact that this is a story about people and not a what-if political satire.”

Goodbye Charlie

Goodbye Charlie
“Michela Carattini (‘Pride and Prejudice’) as Charlie Sorel and Vincent Andriano (‘Julius Caesar’) as George Tracy are simply sublime, have great chemistry, and their timing is just perfect … Highly recommended”
Lynne Belvedere, Sydney Arts Guide, 2013
“It is clear that actress Michela Carattini (Charlie Sorel) has hit her stride with the comedy genre. Her commitment to the embodiment of character showcases her great comedic timing and physical dedication to the role. Her approach to the playboy Charlie Sorel is detailed and ranges from the highly sexual narcissist to the vulnerable, honest girl.”
Rhianne Ev, Theatre Australia, 2013
 

Angels In America
