How did she manage to get a filmcareer? Nepotism?
She is bland, has no presence, no charm, looks average and is only a passable actress.
She was terrific in "In Treatment" on HBO, a real tour de force for such a young actress.
That's what launched her, and deservedly so. She hasn't quite lived up to that series of performances yet in her film work but she has great potential.
She was fabulous in Jane Eyre.
There are worse actresses working in films today
She has the charisma of a block of wood. I'm glad that most attempts to make her happen have failed miserably.
She'll never be a true star until she changes her name to something people can pronounce...
I thought she was lovely in The Kids Are Alright.
Sometimes, one good role doesn't translate into a great film career.
She was a total zero in Albert Nobbs.
She's a very good character actress, she does good work and I think disappears inside a role. But no, she doesn't have the charisma of a movie star (but most actors don't).
Of all the young starts that were foisted on us by Hollywood in recent years, I find her to be the most genuine actor in the bunch. She actually *wants* to work.
I think she's excellent! I'm surprised you don't agree. Oh well....
Didn't see her in IN TREATMENT, but liked her in THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT. However, she was the least interesting Jane Eyre I've ever seen and she was a drab ALICE IN WONDERLAND (never mind that the film was awful too).
She's one of those actresses who are fine in smaller-scale realistic roles, but she lacks the charisma to play leading roles.
Apparently Mia is a very nice, down-to-earth person.
