The actress’s career progressed beyond a certain vampire franchise
One of the films that most catches the interest of some audiences this season is certainly Spencer, the work directed by Pablo Larraín which focuses on intimate elements experienced and felt by the Princess of Wales at the time. , Diana Spencer. The premise is not without precedent as its result has been the fuel for the plot of The Queen and, more recently, the Monarch has had great significance in the third season of The Crown.
However, what really fuels the popular imagination for this particular vision is the work of actress Kristen Stewart. From the start, the film’s marketing used makeup and costume work on the actress, as well as her performance; after preliminary screenings, the actor factor took on even more importance, while currently she is already in demand on the Internet as one of the nominees for the next Oscar for Best Actress.
Yet much of Kristen Stewart’s career is tied to the Twilight Saga, an adolescent cultural phenomenon of the late 2000s and early 2010s. Like her colleague Robert Pattison, she built a very post-Twilight career. in small-run films (and those with more attention not performing well) that have kept their development out of the public eye.
With this in mind, there are five films in which the actress, throughout her career, has participated and are examples that her filmography is much more varied and rich than one might imagine.
5) Panic room
The second film of her career, third if you count her uncredited appearance in The Flintstones of Viva Rock Vegas, puts her in the shoes of a teenage girl who, along with her mother, finds herself isolated in a secure room while Burglars break into her home and wait for the moment they leave. A simple proposal that follows the style of the Home Invasion subgenre (already discussed in another post and older than you might think) if not for the names involved.
There is a very interesting chemistry in the duo.
Quarto do Panico was directed by David Fincher, whose career was already solidified by such hits as Clube da Luta and Seven; Not only that, the then-actress also had the presence of award-winning Jodie Foster by her side, almost accidentally performing a “bake” as she also started out as an actress at a very young age in Taxi Driver alongside the famous Robert De Niro.
Right after the release of the second and final installment of Breaking Dawn, it’s easy to understand that the actress wanted to get as far away from the franchise as possible which, even having raised her to fame, kept her from taking flights. higher in the public imagination. In 2016, she appeared in Café Society, a drama directed and written by Woody Allen.
Stewart and Eisenberg are longtime professional colleagues
Not only that, but the actress also resumes a long-standing partnership with actor Jesse Eisenberg, the film’s protagonist. It was with this production that Stewart returned to work with a major filmmaker for the first time since the end of Twilight, and it undoubtedly played an important role in orienting his career towards the small production industry.
This is an example of a production where Kristen was not the center of attention, but her colleague Juliane Moore. The drama over the gradual loss of memory of a renowned teacher who has suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and who has to cope with the rapid changes in her life, as well as that of her family, has won Moore the Academy Award. best actress in the 2015 edition.
Another occasion in which the actress starred with an industry benchmark
Kristen, meanwhile, plays the role of the protagonist’s youngest daughter, who occupies a position of denial in the face of her mother’s illness. So much so that even after the siblings have taken a test to determine their risk of showing a tendency for the disease in the future, she still chooses not to have it. Throughout the plot, the character demonstrates that she has a true arc of development, ranging from total denial to the gradual approach of her mother, who becomes more and more dependent on help.
Another project in which the actress has by her side a veteran of the cinema, which at this point turns out to be a feature of the projects chosen by her. The name of the era is that of the award-winning Juliette Binoche, immortalized in the second film of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s color trilogy.
In the plot, Stewart plays the role of assistant to a renowned actress who, after the death of her mentor, decides to revisit the same film that made her a star years before. The difference is that in the new version, a young actress will take on the position that once belonged to her. In the meantime, the character of Binoche will go through a real crisis of personal identity, discovering a strong attraction for his assistant.
Released in 2016, the film directed by Olivier Assayas puts Kristen Stewart back in the genre of suspense by presenting a plot in which she plays the role of purchasing advisor for a top model; However, his personal life fell apart after the death of his twin brother.
It was then that his brother’s girlfriend decided to sell the house they lived in to a couple of friends; Before that, however, clients hire Kristen’s character to make contact with possible supernatural presences in the new home, whether or not they are friendly.
