1. Rachel Getting Married (2008)
With Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married, Anne Hathaway acquired her first Oscar nomination. It was a well-deserved honor, for this naturalistic, deftly-handled lead efficiency would possibly stay her greatest into the longer term. Though it does not have the identical grandiose lavish as Hathaway’s astonishing Les Miserables efficiency, her brittle, disarming efficiency is genuine, highly effective, and unabashed. She portrays a gritty, grounded sincerity, darkish undercurrent, and unflinching realism that is hardly ever ever portrayed so believably, nor with a lot impactful emotional gravitas, from an A-list actress of Hathaway’s stature.
