Test your movie knowledge and give your A to Gert's Movie Q.

The theme of this new series of Movie Q's: actors and actresses and the profession of the characters they are portraying.
Who are these four actors and what profession do their characters share?
Hint: Two of the movies are based on the same novel.

Last week's A: 
Judi Dench in Notes On A Scandal, Ryan Gosling in Half Nelson, Sandrine Kiberlain in Mademoiselle Chambon and, probably the most difficult of the four, Takako Matsu in Confessions, Japan’s official entry for the 2011 Academy Awards. Their shared profession: teacher.
