Total Recall: Winona Ryder's Best Movies


Winona Ryder was one of the more prolific film stars of the late 1980s and early 1990s, appearing in almost 20 movies over the space of a decade and working with some of the industry's most respected actors and directors along the way. Her pace has slowed in recent years, but with roles in Black Swan and this weekend's The Dilemma, Winona's pulling double duty at the box office -- which, naturally, got us thinking about the many highlights of an eclectic filmography that includes teen comedies, period dramas, and plenty in between. How do your favorites stack up against the critics'? It's time to find out! Back to Article

She's been in some pretty good movies but I've never found her the least bit convincing.

I have to agree. She's likable enough, but not really a very good actress.

I'd have to agree with you there.
I don't get how Girl Interrupted, Reality Bites, and A Scanner Darkly are so low on the tomato meter though. Either way, Age of Innocence is also ranked too low and it should be the top one there.
It's fairly obvious I'm a fan of hers. I will say that Dracula was really not that good. Even acting wise. Everyone was just... okay, apart from Oldman who was great and Reeves who was terrible. Apart from that and a few bad career choices, I think she is quite likable in her roles and some are even fantastic.
