Her grace echoes through the lens and her commitment to her roles has resulted in a highly varied and substantial portfolio of work. The sense of certainty and dedication that she brings to her performances is what makes this delightful actress so enjoyable to witness on screen. Her past work stems from blockbuster hits for the masses, such as the dreary Titanic, to underrated independent British gems such as the heartbreaking Iris and the creepily delicious Heavenly Creatures.
Winslet is a British starlet who transcends across to the American audiences, flawlessly. Her subtlety within both moving cult hits, such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and high budget dramas like Revolutionary Road, make her an incredibly versatile an adaptable actress. I admire Kate Winslet a great deal, not only as an actress but as a woman. Her self confidence and ability to accept herself physically means she does not hold back on screen, or in real life. She is a survivor of childhood and adolescent bullying and has spoken openly about her experiences on several occasions. She shows her support and concern for other victims. She is an inspiration for British women due to her level headed attitude towards life and learning. The balance of her humbleness and her sense of self belief make her a highly respected British actress and star.
Above all, I admire her film choices. In a similar way to the dazzling Imelda Staunton, Winslet is not too proud to accept the less credible work that is offered to her. She has found the perfect balance so that her mainstream films sell well enough to allow her to work on more meaningful independent projects such as The Life of David Gale. Kate Winslet seems to journey through her career with a sense of decency and a sense of humour. For this, I applaud her.
Thanks for reading and let’s all keep supporting our beloved film industry.
