A place to get away from it all and write….

Both of these actresses are acting chameleons! They can be comedic, serious, depressing, and even mysterious. They have even taken risks which in most cases wound up in their favor in the end.

I first saw Saoirse Ronan within the hit film, The Lovely Bones. Have you seen it? It’s an equally if not more powerful book. It’s about a young girl who goes missing and it’s later discovered that she was killed by a neighbor. It brings to question the idea of life and death and the bridge that connects the two. Not to mention the cinematography skills are amazing in this film.

Then she busted outs onto the scene with the movie Hanna, which if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s awesome, I hope they make a sequel. Also another fun fact is that the Chemical Brothers did the music for the entire film. It’s filled with action and twists and turns in the plot that leave the viewer guessing what is going to happen next.

Then she was in the movie The Host, which based off of the book written by Stephanie Meyer, you know that chick who wrote Twilight. It was a decent film, but I felt it was lacking something.

Moving on to great and talented Scarlett Johansen, seems to have been acting forever. Did you know she has a music album out?

The first movie I remember seeing her in was Lost in Translation with Bill Murray. Great movie, very interesting concept too. This was followed by The Girl with the Pearl Earring, which I do believe I saw first now that I think about it…Anywho she can play anything you throw as her.

Then she stared in a great family film entitles, We Bought a Zoo!! Amazing movie, I mean I think almost every movie Matt Damon is in is an instant his.

Then she became an instant hit with The Avengers movies, making appearances in Captain America’s films as well.

She played a controlling woman in the comedy Don Juan.

Most recently she played in this sci fi film about being able to access 100% of her brain. Lucy? It was alright…

What is your favorite film by these ladies?
