This year we have the Quvenzhane Wallis hurricane all over the world. But what are your favorite child performances?
I have to say I’m in love with Anna Paquin in ‘The Piano’. That was amazing acting, and she was just… eight? nine?
My favorite this year was Tom Holland in The Impossible.
Some of the greatest ever are Anna Paquin in The Piano, Linda Blaire in The Exorcist, and Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz.
Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit.
Jamie Bell in Billy Elliot.
Thomas Doret in The Kid with a Bike.
Natalie Portman in The Professional.
Kirsten Dunst in Wag the Dog.
