There’s something about her presence that is so delicate, her voice is charming and wonderful. She's lightness and she’s what we idealize of a classy British woman.
I have not seen much of her work. She actually started as a Bond Girl (I don’t know if you still remember that film). I didn’t appreciate the film very much but I certainly appreciate this three:
In ‘An Education’ she plays Helen, a woman rich in appearance but poor in mind. She ends up being a cold woman, but bottom line – classy all the way.
With ‘Made in Dagenham’ she plays a woman with a degree from Oxford University but her life resumes has being a wife and a mother with no permission to have a point of view of her own, in a society governed by men.
Rosamund Pike studied English Literature from Oxford University but she decided to lead her life in another direction.
In ‘Barney’s Version’ just took a look at her to make Baney fall in love with her.
But my favorite film of Rosamund Pike has to be - Pride and Prejudice.
Not because is my favorite film (!) but I think Joe Wright did an amazing choice of casting.
Her character is delicate and fragile, shy and pure; she’s the beloved sister of Elizabeth Bennet.
Now that I mention Pride and Prejudice, I feel like seeing it for the thirtieth time…
