Ansel Elgort rose to fame after playing the role of Augustus Waters in the much beloved romantic film ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. Considering the way he portrayed this role, you would think that he must be older and more experienced. I thought so, too! But he is not really that old (as compared to his co-stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller), if not less experienced. At the age of just 24, he has managed to be a heart-throb, been the part of a successful franchise and (only recently) played the lead role in one of the surprise hits of the year. The journey has just begun for Elgort and by gauging his talent, one can easily say that he is here to stay.
He already has a dedicated fandom, and if you needed anything more to add to his already intense charm, he is also a DJ and has released a couple of albums with major record labels. If you are beginning to have a crush on him and want some more of his films, you’ll have to wait. Because he is still fairly new, he has only a bunch of films to his credit. However, you can still browse through his filmography. To make matters easier, here is the list of top 6 movies of Ansel Elgort:
6. November Criminals (2017)
Released in the same year as his hit film ‘Baby Driver’, this film is his least good film yet. I only watched it because of Ansel Elgort and found out that the reason was not good enough. It follows the story of Addison who tries to solve the murder of a fellow student. He is helped by his clever girlfriend Digger, played by Chloe Grace Moretz. The film was conceived by Steven Knight, the creator of movies like ‘Locke’ and shows like ‘Peaky Blinders’ and ‘Taboo’. A murder mystery by Knight looked like an exciting idea. But it didn’t pan out as it was supposed to. It wasn’t entirely a disaster. The characters were likable and the Ansel Elgort’s acting saved the day for him, but it failed to do wonders for a movie that suffered from the loose plot and wavering interest.
