In December she stars along with Oscar Isaac as his wife (Anna Morales) in a crime drama set during the early 80’s in New York. She also has role in Miss Julie, The Zookeepers Wife and Crimson Peak in her future. Richard Roeper said back in 2011 that “Jessica Chastain is one of the best actresses of her generation”. From all these great performances and different roles she has shown that she definitely has what it takes to become the greatest actress of her generation. The future will see if that happens. The dreaded Oscar drought has only been a few years so this year could be that year she wins and puts herself in the conversation as one of the best talents we have. I for one am looking forward to all these movies she has coming.
