Birthday binge-watch: 5 movies that prove Felicity Jones is a gem of an actress
Felicity Jones feels like an overnight Hollywood ‘It Girl’ with her major roles in blockbuster films. Before her Oscar nomination, Jones had established an impressive resume with some memorable roles.
Fans who paid attention and followed her career knew that the stunning Brit has a world of talent, and it was only a matter of time before Hollywood catches on.
She’s made quite an impact throughout her career and seems poised to continue doing so. On the occasion of her 36th Birthday, don’t forget to watch Inferno on Sony PIX celebrates her 36th birthday.
Jones plays Sienna, Robert Langdon's companion for this Dante-themed adventure through Italy.
It’s amusing how most of the film would have people believing that she’s one of the protagonists and that she ends up being one of the antagonists who is actively trying to kill off a large portion of the world’s population using a viral superweapon.
Unlike the female lead in most blockbuster films, Sienna commands the story, just as our hero does. Watch Inferno only on Sony PIX.
Like Crazy is the story of an American boy and a British girl who fall in love while in college, who must then navigate the complications of a transatlantic relationship.
The movie did not really have a traditional script, and most of the times, actors improvised their dialogues, which resulted in a raw, intimate portrayal of the lightness and limitations of young love.
In the film, Jones is totally captivating, in her turn as a young woman continually being changed by those chaotic, scary post-college years.
The Theory of Everything
The Theory of Everything is a biographical film that revolves around the relationship between theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, and his wife Jane Wilde Hawking.
The film was based on Jane’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen. This is the role that garnered her an Oscar nomination for playing the Jane Hawking.
Although Eddie Redmayne ended up winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Hawking, but Jones was a huge focal point of the movie and the unsung MVP.
This role not only established her on the mainstream, but it cemented the fact that she is an actress that can do just about anything.
A Monster Calls
In A Monster Calls, Felicity Jones plays the terminally ill young mother of the film's boy protagonist.
The book the film is based on comes from the creator Patrick Ness and the man behind the camera for the adaptation is Spanish director JA Bayona.
This film is worth watching with Jones in it. The movie has got effusive praise for Jones’s turn as a cancer-stricken young mother desperate to ensure her son is going to be okay when she’s gone.
The Invisible Woman
The Invisible Woman is based on a book of the same name by Claire Tomalin.
The movie tells the story of the 13-year affair between Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) and Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones) that lasted until his death in 1870.
In the unenviable position of acting alongside talented actor Fiennes who also directs, Jones establishes herself as an actor who can shine even among the biggest stars.
