Carey Mulligan claimed her first Oscar nomination for her lead role in the 2009 coming-of-age saga “An Education.” Now the British actress is once again collecting bountiful awards buzz for her latest role as a #MeToo- era femme fatale avenger in the darkly comic thriller “Promising Young Woman.”
Like many of the directors whose names appear on her resume, first-time helmer Emerald Fennell — the Season 2 showrunner for ”Killing Eve” who also plays Camila Parker Bowles in “The Crown” — has a distinctive vision that allows the actress to inhabit abundant shades of emotion, from ballsy and badass to pastel-pink and girly.
In honor of her latest, take a photo gallery tour of Mulligan’s 12 best movies, ranked worst to best. In addition to the films mentioned above, we also include “Pride and Prejudice,” “Mudbound,” “Wildlife” and more.
