When I first saw Anna Kendrick, self-assured and a beguiling charm latched onto her like a vine, in ‘Up in the Air’, I was completely blown away. The fineness of her articulate and emotional performance is truly ineffable and pleasantly refreshing. The jolly actress made great inroads in the industry early on in her career, with a path-changing role in the Twilight series. She is well-known and loved for her efficacious charm and a penchant for being obnoxiously adorable. Her small stature in no way compares to her towering credentials as an actress.
Kendrick is today a recognized star, achieving that coveted superstar tag owing to her wonderful performances. Even though the majority of her roles have been in mainstream cinema, the diminutive actress has been able to include an art film here or there with a seamless transition. Here is the list of top Anna Kendrick movies for your pleasure. Happy reading!
10. The Hollars (2016)
‘The Hollars’ was a pretty little picture that came out in the year 2016/ The John Krasinski-helmed film went completely under the radar, but stood out for its performances. The film is about the Hollar family, requisite with an ailing pair of husband and wife, and their two contrasting sons. While one’s a successful analyst, the other lives with them, in charge of the family business. When their mother suffers an attack, which is later diagnosed to be cancer, the family reunites, scurrying back memories and creating new ones. Kendrick plays Krasinski’s pregnant and insecure girlfriend, who has a supporting role in the film. She managed to play her part well, concise and effective in her small role. A special note for Margo Martindale though, who was surprisingly terrific.
