      I can’t remember much of her performance, although I know it was solid… I’d probably go for The Debt.

    It’s amazing that she was an unknown 2 yrs ago but I’ve seen about 4 of her films by now. Great actress.

      Yeah, I didn’t know her before that either and she’s been putting in steady work. I don’t think she’s as out there (publicity wise) as much as other actresses, which I really like.

    Other than the cardigan sweaters, she was my favorite part of Lawless. Also thought she was great in Take Shelter.

      She was very good in those movies indeed.

    I think she is one of the few who could have thrived in classic Hollywood. One thing I haven’t really seen her in is a comedy, but i’ve only seen 3 of her films.

      Yeah, I understand what you mean…she has a certain mystique about her…

    I loved her in The Tree of Life. Didn’t realize she was in so many films. Quite talented.

      Can’t remember much anymore from Tree of Life (wasn’t a fan of the movie), I was surprised that it was her in The Help, I had seen the movie, but not recognised her.

    I have been very impressed by Chastain over the past couple of years, and while she did a good job in Zero Dark Thirty, my fave role of hers still is in The Help.

    Great choice this week. She is so fantastic. I liked her in Take Shelter too (not a lot of people have seen that one)

      Yeah, she was very funny in The Help. I have seen Take Shelter, although I wasn’t a fan of the movie the performances were awesome.
