  1. Love her in everything she does. Looking forward to seeing Game Change. My favourites are probably not really for her performances but just because I love the movies: Children of Men, Bookie Nights, Crazy Stupid Love, The Hours. But there’s too many to mention. She really is great in everything. I need to see Far From Heaven.

  2. She definitely has the talent and she has put in a few great performances during her career. However, she hasn’t really found THE great role out there that could see her winning awards. So far, my favorite role of hers was playing the troubled wife of a dying multimillionaire in Magnolia. My favorite film that she has been a part of is Children of Men.

    PS…it’s interesting to see the evolution of her hairstyle over the years. Time has treated her very well.

  3. I’d probably have to say her best role is Amber Waves from Boogie Nights. Somehow she manages to deliver a sexy performance without undermining the character’s maternal desires/instincts.

    • Nice to hear someone else liked her in that. I always wonder how many people have seen it as it seems to be a movie which isn’t mentioned much. I’ve seen it multiple times and think it is amazing.
