    Mulligan’s performance in ‘An Education’ is alone better than Wasikowska’s entire boring film career.

    Mulligan is by far the better actress. Filmography? Maybe Mulligan too.

    I love both actresses. But if I had to choose with a gun to my head, I would say Wasikowska. I think she picks very interesting projects and thankfully, because Alice in Wonderland was a giant success, that allows her to continue to do those types of projects and work with prestigious directors. But Mulligan picks pretty legit projects as well and her performance in Shame proves she’s not just an adorable face. She’s going to go far, as is Mia.

    I’d go with Mia. Most recently, Carey has been working with very famous
    directors, but the movies themselves haven’t been that good. While Mia’s last
    four movies in filmography have been strong, interesting choices. In
    addition, her film “Stoker” made my top 10 last year and her follow ups,
    “Tracks” and “Only Lovers Left Alive” may just do the same this year.
    Mia is on a serious roll atm. I can’t wait to see “Crimson Peak” in
    2015.

    I would say Carey’s top five films are:
    1. Pride & Prejudice
    2. Drive
    3. Inside Llewyn Davis
    4. An Education
    5. Shame

    Mia:
    1. Tracks
    2. Only Lovers Left Alive
    3. That Evening Sun
    4. The Kids Are All Right
    5. The Double

    Based purely on the quality of those movies and not what that each performer contributed to those flicks I’d go with Mulligan. Those top two flicks of Carey’s are two of my favorites from the past fifteen years. And that third movie was in my top five for last year. I expect both to be around for a while.

    You forgot Mia has Maps To The Stars. That shows how forgettable she tends to be 99.9% of the time.

    With that said, I believe Carey is the better actress and the one who stands out the most between the two. I don’t think I like either of them though.

    Mia also has Lawless. But even with that included, Mulligan wins hands down. Never Let Me Go, Drive & Shame outshine any film on Mia’s list.

    Interesting comparison.

    Always subjective, I enjoyed Carey’s 2 minutes in Brothers; also, she’s as good as her male co-star in Shame.  That’s about it. In everything else, I’ve felt she was miscast, sometimes hilariously so. Not good when she makes me laugh or guffaw in a drama. If she’s 16 in An Education, someone pass me a hat because I’ll eat it.

    Mia I wasnt any kind of fan of until she slowly began earning my respect and interest in her work. She’s changed my mind. It was Lawless that finally did it, not TKaAR.

    So, I’m going with Mia. Of the two, she’s got more potential.

    Mulligan has better films, but Wasikowska gave more interesting performances and, in my oppinion, a better actress. I don’t think Wasikowska is forgetable at all. She is just one of those actresses that tend to disappear in the role. Sort of like Jennifer Ehle.
