    I was thinking about putting Ellen Burstyn in as well, but I think her role is so small, and her performance is so forgettable, that she wouldn’t have such big chance to win this poll.

    I also think that Anne Hathaway is supporting, but as I’m also following the real-life submissions, she is submitted as lead, so I cannot put her in.

    I expected to find Chastain very worthy in this, but among the ladies in the film, she’s the weakest link with the less of a screen time as well. I think Mackenzie Foy (and Anne Hathaway) is so much better than her in the movie.

    Both were great, but where I felt like Foy was more impressive, Chastain was simply as good as she usually is. Foy has my vote for going beyond the typical young actor role and getting my attention.

    Performance-wise, I thought Foy actually stole the film. She really carried Murph’s emotional burden in the early sections, and she worked very well opposite McConaughey.

    Chastain was her usual great, but there was nothing special about her performance here while Foy was particularly great. This girl is a real deal. Someone should make a movie starring them as mother and daughter ASAP.

    What is up with the love for Foy…my god. Ok, she was pretty good…for a child actor (who are usually awful).

    Voted Chastain though. Her role was pivotal to the movie´s development. Plus, she is Chastain….can´t be objective with her!

    Nope. She was pretty good as an actress. Not as a child actor. Although, Chastain was nowhere near as good as she is. Also, the role is the same. So if Chastain’s role was pivotal to the movie’s development, Foy’s too.

    I went with Mackenzie Foy. She may have had a smaller role, but really made the most of it and for a young child actress, gave such a mature and well-rounded performance.

    Both were fine. I went with Chastain though for the scene when she asks Brand (Hathaway) if she knew they were never coming back, and the scene with Caine at his bedside.

    Another vote for Mackenzie Foy. Jessica Chastain was very good but Foy’s chemistry with McConaughey made you believe in the depth of their bond.

    Also, Ellen Burstyn was superb in her small role. That “because my dad promised me” will be jerking tears for generations to come.

    True, but somehow I didn’t care for her performance enough. I think if I rank the cast, I have 1. Foy 2. Hathaway 3. McConaughey 4. Chastain 5. Caine 6. Damon and maybe for 7. Burstyn.

    Not now, not then.

    Interstellar will be rightfully forgotten.
