Default Re: Top Three Greatest Performances by an Actress in Film

A couple of my recent-ish favourites:

Rooney Mara - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Kate Winslet - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Kate Hudson - Almost Famous (total Oscar robbery here)

I really loved this too.

Haven't seen the Swedish original, but I can somewhat tell by looking at the chick in fotos and how her expression is that I would probably prefer Rooney's darker take.


Kate Winslet is consistently strong... aside from the performances mentioned, I was also moved by 'Revolutionary Road' and 'Little Children'.

Jessica Chastain in 'Take Shelter' is another one that comes to mind.

It was either Eternal Sunshine or Little Children for my Winslet pick. Little Children is very underrated despite all the award buzz it originally got.

Both performances and movies were great but, IMO, both the American movie and Mara were a little bit better. There are slight differences in the performances where Mara is a bit of a quieter and more vulnerable Lisbeth. I really hope Fincher and the whole cast find the time to make the other two movies in the series.
