In this week’s Total Recall, we take a look at the films that helped define the Jane Got a Gun star’s career.
Child actors are notorious for fizzling out once their prepubescent charms disappear during adolescence, or once they discover the various vices of the adult world, and it seems to be the rare case when a young starlet can overcome these hurdles and transition successfully into a career of grownup roles. Natalie Portman is one such success story: after making her debut as a 12-year-old in Luc Besson’s Leon: The Professional, Portman gradually took on more adult roles until she was playing everything from Anne Boleyn to an emotionally manipulative stripper. This week, she stars in (and produces) the Western drama Jane Got a Gun, so we felt it was the right time to take a look back at the extensive filmography of this young star to determine Natalie Portman’s Definitive Movies.
