Jacinda Barrett is 5 feet, 10 inches in her stocking feet. She has a teal-colored tattoo on the inside of her right ankle and her face--girlish and soft on film--is carved and somewhat angular in person. Although her chocolate-brown eyes convey a firmness of purpose, Barrett retains the laid-back Aussie charm that helped her make the leap from the cast of MTV's "The Real World: London" to real-life actress on the silver screen.

And that suits the 32-year-old Australian actress just fine. "I definitely can't complain," says Barrett, who plays the compassionate wife of a Baltimore fireman (Joaquin Phoenix) in "Ladder 49."

As a loving tribute to the courage and sacrifice of firefighters, it's first-class. As a movie, it's a TV show.
