British actress Kate Winslet turns 46 on October 5. Over the course of her 30-year career, she managed to amaze the audience with talented reincarnations more than once, to make millions of viewers fall in love with herself and to win many prestigious awards. congratulates Kate and recalls the 5 best roles of the hereditary British actress.
Marianne Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility, 1995)
A year after the debut and rather loud appearance of Kate Winslet in the movie in the drama "Heavenly Creatures" by Peter Jackson, the actress was invited to play one of the Dashwood sisters in the film adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility.
At that time, the British woman was only 20 years old. However, the lack of much experience did not prevent Kate from playing the passionate young Marianne, who is not at all like her sister, with whom she has to overcome many trials.
Winslet impressed the creators, including director Ang Lee, even at the auditions - instead of a small minor role, she got one of the main ones and coped with it brilliantly. This is confirmed by several prestigious awards and nominations at once: she was noted at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, and the British Film Academy even awarded Winslet with a BAFTA award for Best Supporting Actress. Hardly anyone would have thought that the second acting transformation would be so successful for Kate. Further more.
Rose Dewitt Bukater (Titanic, 1997)
When James Cameron set out to make a film about the most famous shipwreck in history and tell the love story of the wandering artist Jack and the unfree heiress of Rose's great fortune, many guessed that something special was going to come out of Titanic. However, the result exceeded even the wildest expectations.
Today, when it comes to the best roles of Kate Winslet or Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron's picture is sometimes shyly forgotten. Like, the mention of "Titanic" is a cliché, and the tape itself is pure mainstream. However, it is still a great work, thanks in no small part to Winslet. Obviously, without a couple of young and terribly talented actors, the magic of the epic would hardly have worked: there would be no two billion at the box office, no 11 Oscars, no reference love story to cry over and admire anywhere in the world.
Of course, Winslet was nominated for many awards. And yet it is much more important what doors Titanic opened in front of her - it became clear to everyone that the British woman was ready for any role and a wonderful acting future awaited her. And so it happened.
Clementine (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 2004)
After Titanic, Winslet, unlike those who could not cope with the load of suddenly fallen popularity, continued to appear in notable projects. The Pen of the Marquis de Sade (2000) and Iris (2001) brought her further nominations for prestigious awards. However, there are enough of them in the career of an actress. Winslet was clearly not chasing awards, having agreed to a role in Michel Gondry's melodrama Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
In the film, based on a script by Charlie Kaufman, the British woman plays a girl with bright blue hair, the beloved of an extremely melancholic and overly shy Joel. They are destined to forever love and forget each other, hurt and bring happiness.
Despite Kaufman's unusual and this time appropriately twisted narration, not everyone liked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In particular, American film critic Andrew Sarris wrote about the wrong casting for the roles and, as a result, the lack of chemistry between Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. However, such assessments were single - Winslet again collected the usual armful of nominations for major awards, including the Oscar. True, she again did not get it, but it was only a matter of time.
