10. Gideon’s Daughter (2006)
Forceful, compelling, and innately exhilarating, Emily Blunt’s performance will take you aback with utter surprise. Bold and intrepid in her actions, Blunt pushes herself to outperform the others, leaving a trail of “almost great” performances. Playing the emotionally detached Natasha, Blunt does a superlative job of just doing enough to convince us of her insouciance to her father’s presence. The film in itself was a major success, garnering acclaim and praise of the crowds with its subtle and nuanced job of presenting troubled and strained relationships.
