I Care A Lot (2020)

I can’t be the only person who thinks that Rosamund Pike is one of the most underrated actresses of her generation. It’s been seven years since she made herself a real household name (despite being around since the early 2000s) in Gone Girl, but for me much of her most interesting work has come in…

Nomadland (2020)

When it comes to long term critical acclaim, there are very few actresses in the last two decades who have built as strong a portfolio as Frances McDormand.
