Elizabeth Burns giving it pretty good to Lily as her actual younger sister, Kailee looks on with concern. I am admittedly a sucker for anything with these two siblings in it.
I find a lot of these Russian/Ukrainian photo sets to be objectively severe enough to make the fellow models' looks of sympathy seem quite genuine.
The seated model's expression here seems to convey not just sympathy for her friend, but a sort of sense of worry that she will be next.
True sympathy? Good acting? You decide.
Before finishing up, I've decided to add one last 'group shot' that doesn't quite fit in with the "sympathy" angle...........but I felt I'd prefer to end with something more lighthearted.
I happen to love when a witness 'enjoys' the plight of their friend perhaps even more than when they seem sympathetic.
