Such is the power of Carrie Fisher that she can bring down the house without even actually appearing on screen. The final line of this year's bleak, unique stand-alone "Star Wars story" emerges from the computer-constructed mouth of a young Princess Leia – a single word that the underlines importance of what countless Rebels have died to have delivered to her. Compared to the film's CGI Tarkin, this Leia simulacrum is on screen for just seconds. But her monosyllabic summation of the film's message carries nearly 40 years of audience affection for the character who utters it. It's as if we the viewers have been catapulted to a galaxy, far, far away and a long time ago, when hope was in seemingly boundless supply.
