Saoirse Ronan

Any fans? If she is in a movie the majority of the time it is going to be pretty good.

Could she be the Streep of this generation?

Maybe if she does more commercial movies along with the Indies and smaller films her career could reach a new level.

Re: Saoirse Ronan

She was fantastic in Lady Bird, one of the best performances in ages.

Re: Saoirse Ronan

She's great. I think everyone thinks that. Plus she's only 25 and has already been nominated for an Oscar for three different performances.

Hannah was interesting since it was an action film and she carried it totally. I'd love her to do some more action and some other more commercial films.

But Meryl Streep? Let's pump the brakes a bit.

Re: Saoirse Ronan

I feel like this thread is 10 years late.

She’s one of my favorites. Seen basically ever film and on Broadway.

Re: Saoirse Ronan

Good actress, but I prefer her lesser known films like Lost River & Byzantium. I prefer those over Lady Bird & Brooklyn which except for her performances are IMO very overrated.

Re: Saoirse Ronan

Yep, she blew it away in Hanna. Lady Bird was okay, she's what made the movie for me. But I love her, I think she's a damn fine actress.

Well, her and Laurie Metcalf. And "Brooklyn" was a beautiful film.
