    pride and prejudice was amazing! Though you missed the Duchess that was an awesome file as well, I don't think I've seen a film with Knightley I didn't like XD

    I did not like affectation Keira Knightley in the film "Anna Karenina".. She's a girl of course beautiful, no doubt, but she better emotions are not squeezed out .

    She was excellent in Dangerous Method. As beautiful as she is, she didn’t mind at ll being totally spooky and even ugly. Great physical acting. I was mesmerized.

    She was magnificent in Pride and Prejudice. I cannot see her with any other actor than Matthew McFadyen.

    Some of my favorite roles of hers that tend to fly under-the-radar are in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Begin Again, and Laggies.

    Good actress
    Kind of reminds me of Diana. Maybe she should play her in the crown.
    Don't like her mouth and her voice though
    Most of her roles, she is always cheating so not likable in them
    Best in Bend it

    The Dutches should be on here, she is absolutely amazing in that

  • Erin Galligan

    The Duchess should be on there, somewhere closer to the top (maybe not #1 but top 3 at least). I don't think The Hole belongs on this list and I wouldn't put Cecilia as her most iconic role, I'd actually say that Elizabeth Bennett claims that title. Other than those notes I agree with the list.

    It bothers me that Lady Gaga is getting as close to getting an Oscar while Keira Knightly hardly gets any nomination or recognition at all. So unfairly underrated :(

    THE DUCHESS. I’ll echo other commenters. It’s criminal to omit that performance. That’s the one performance that finally won me over to her. For SHAME. Shame on you, Mojo UK.

    Pride and Prejudice surely deserved the top spot and her nuanced performance in Last Night should've made the list. But then again I'm a fan so every role she has played is a favorite of mine.
