The story might seem a little incoherent nonetheless young Kate impresses as the troubled, ruthless not to mention sexy Ruth.
- The Holiday
Kate and Jack Black weird right? Weird as it may sound but the two along with Jude Law and Cameron Diaz gave us a delightful romantic comedy to watch. Winslet’s first comedy doesn’t end up being a disappointment even though is a tad bit long. Kate surprises with her fluidity even at this genre as Iris Simpkins who swaps home with Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) to take a break from her love life woes.
- Finding Neverland
Kate is a pro when it comes to the genre of Drama. A semi- biographical take on the life of the creator of Peter Pan, Finding Neverland revolves around the emotional bonding of playwright James Matthew Barrie (Johny Depp) with Sylvia Davies ‘(Kate Winslet) family. This film, more focused on Depp’s character, is high on emotional quotient like most of Winslet’s work and shows wonderful chemistry between the two leads.
Kate Winslet shines back in this Comedy/Drama by Roman Polanski with credible support from Jodie Foster and Christopher Waltz. The story is about two parents who in an attempt to cordially dissolve the issues between their children end up being engaged in childish feuds themselves. The film rather unconventional manages to engage audience as it sails through with Polanski’s able direction and the cast’s notable performances.
