I find out about good movies from threads like this.

Who has blown your mind??

She was amazing in it!!

Tatiana Maslany, she's in Orphan Black and plays Sarah and all the different clones. I believed she's played the part of 12 clones!! She's also nominated for an Emmy!

Jim Parsons, he plays Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory and has nailed that role! He's won Emmys for that role.

Ellen Page in Hard Candy.

I love Winona! Such a shame the shoplifting charges pretty much decimated her career. Glad she's back!

KingJoffrey, just finished watching this last night, and will be lost without it , now.
The lad who played her older son was very good, too: I felt really sorry for him.

Jerome Flynn in Ripper Street. One of the best TV performance's I've ever seen.

NEVER thought I'd be saying that about one half of Robson and Jerome!

The girl who plays Eleven in Stranger Things is excellent too, given that she hardly says anything and it's all in her eyes. Don't know if she has been in anything else though.

Jerome Flynn is amazing in RS
Also fantastic in game of thrones
Am loving WR in stranger things - incredible performance

It's so nice to see her again, she was awesome as she always was. I checked her imdb to see where she's been and she has been consistently acting but not in anything big.

RealDMJourno Wed 10-Aug-16 17:02:48

noble she was in one episode of grey's anatomy.

DoesAnyoneReadTheseThings Wed 10-Aug-16 17:04:34

RealDM - I agree! Hard Candy is a brilliant film and she's so good in it!

LaurieFairyCake Wed 10-Aug-16 17:06:56

Steve Carell in the Big Short - best performance I've seen for years in anything.

He's seriously been practising his craft to get that good. I was blown away.

Eleven from Stranger Things is British, as is the actor playing Winona's oldest son!

2kids2dogsnosense Thu 11-Aug-16 21:41:48

Charles Kay and Bob Peck in "Edge of Darkness". Kay just exudes sinister menace, and Peck is totally believable as a man determined to find out what's going on and avenge his daughter's murder.

I watched episode two last night, and was struck then by how good all the cast are, especially the younger ones. Child actors can often be either a bit wooden or forced <cough cough Harry Potter films> but all of them are really natural, and the girl playing Eleven is superb.

DoreenLethal Thu 11-Aug-16 21:49:47

I literally just searched for this and called out to the OH to start finding it on the Kodi box. Weird. Really weird.

Imfinehowareyou Thu 11-Aug-16 21:53:16

Ben Mendelsohn - Danny Rayburn in Bloodline. Totally mesmerising. He's actually Australian and was in Neighbours with Kylie!

CathFromCooberPedy Thu 11-Aug-16 21:56:53

You have a kodi box too Doreen? Bloody love ours smile

Anyway, Winona was brilliant in stranger things. The whole show was amazing and l stayed up to stupid o'clock on Sunday night watching the last 4 episodes.

CathFromCooberPedy Thu 11-Aug-16 21:58:04

Oh a100% agree on the kid actors. Eleven was fantastic.

DoreenLethal Thu 11-Aug-16 22:06:24

Yes it is fab.

Am off to bed but will be doing a search for it tomorrow.

DeliasPancakes Thu 11-Aug-16 22:06:36

Eleven was in the BBC drama Intruders. She was bloody brilliant in that too. I second the actress from Orphan Black...fantastic actress.

peanutnutter Thu 11-Aug-16 22:31:12

Mireille Enos was superb in the killing on Netflix

WeeM Thu 11-Aug-16 22:35:36

Christian slater in mr robot...he's still got it. Just watching the second stranger things and loving it so far.

JigglypuffEvolving Thu 11-Aug-16 22:37:05

YY Mr Robot. He's ridiculously sexy in it.

Nataleejah Fri 12-Aug-16 07:39:22

Morgan Freeman in "Lucky number Slevin" -- so unusual to see him play a baddie.

Anthony Hopkins in "Shadowlands" -- the opposite of Hannibal.

AND my favourite...
Ron Perlman in SOA -- just wow...
