Top Five Movies of Rebecca Hall
I first really became aware of Rebecca Hall in the last year, and not for the rumor that she supposedly broke up the marriage between Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet. (Though the photo shoot of her and Jon Hamm where she is asked about it is definitely worth seeing.) It just seemed like she was starring in a lot of cool movies that I saw in the theater or caught up to on video. Now, she is starring with Will Ferrell in “Everything Must Go” (and Glenn Howerton from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and I think she will have added another cool movie to her list. If you need to catch up with her cinematic roles, here is the list for you.
It’s mostly for Michael Sheen and Frank Langella to really strut their stuff, but Rebecca gets to play act with them as well.
Ok, Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca? I don’t think this is the best Woody Allen movie, but it may be the one with the best looking leading ladies.
From the man that brought you “Memento,” “Inception” and “The Dark Knight Returns” is this story of rival magicians. Again, the addition of Scarlett to Rebecca just makes this pretty great movie so much better for your eyes.
This is just a simple heist movie. Pull a bank job, get rich and retire. But, it just works. Rebecca’s acting, along with Jeremy Renner’s and Jon Hamm’s accentuate a pretty tight story.
This is the movie that made me open up my eyes and say wow. I think Catherine Keener (“Being John Malkovich,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”) is fantastic in everything she does, and the fact that Rebecca held her own with her, as well as Oliver Platt and Amanda Peet, just made my view of her as nothing short of awesome.
