Robin Wright made movie history as the flaxen-haired maiden in The Princess Bride and then as Jenny, the unforgettable love of “Forrest Gump’s” life. In her stellar 27 year career, Wright has cherry-picked meaty roles that let her shine, from the intractable Irish lass in the indie drama “The Playboys” to her turn as the unwavering Mary Surrat, the widow charged for Lincoln’s assassination in “The Conspirator.” Wright steals the show in whatever flick she’s in, but here are our absolute favorite of her performances.
Sure, it’s the Oscars this weekend. And, sure, you’re probably scrambling to make sure you’ve seen everything nominated for Best Picture before Billy Crystal takes the stage (wait, what year is it?), but make sure to leave some time for a few films we think are watch-worthy. This week we’ve got a visit from our boss, Mr. Robert Redford, and a few sexy, French tidbits to keep you entertained. So grab some maïs soufflé and program that DVR.
