Frances McDormand is one of the most acclaimed actresses in Hollywood today. She’s garnered numerous accolades throughout her career, including a Tony Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and three Academy Awards. She is known for appearing in Indie films and playing particular roles of women. She has often collaborated with her filmmaker husband Joel Coen and his brother Ethan (Coen brothers) and has appeared in several Wes Anderson films. In an article written by New York Times featuring the actress, they described her distinctive film roles, saying, “Right as she hit the age when most actresses begin disappearing for lack of roles or moving to the edges of story lines, she moved to first billing. For decades, she excelled at the work of embroidering the lives of women who aren’t deemed appealing enough to watch for two hours straight, and rather than aging into a different acting type, she has taken it upon herself to put peripheral women at the center.” Frances McDormand continues to showcase her acting skills and has expanded her career to producing films as well. Her performances are always a treat, even when she’s portraying complex roles. Here are five of her movies that we highly recommend watching.
