I'd probably say her best performance was in Pure - definitely showed off her acting chops. But since it was a minor role, her character Lara in Dr. Zhivago would be her best overall.

Dr. Zhivago > Pure > Pirates of the Caribbean > Bend It Like Beckham > The Hole > Love Actually > King Arthur

(I'm excluding The Jacket, Princess of Thieves and anything earlier, just because I haven't seen them.) I'm just going to say that KA was not one of her better performances, simply because the movie was a bit too blockbuster-style, with little depth to the characters whatsoever.

Newbie here - I'd choose Doctor Zhivago, no question - Keira had *such* a demanding and difficult role in that movie...with big shoes to fill (as it was a remake)....and I think she was just amazing. It's especially impressive due to her age (she had to be between 15 and 16 when filming, I think)....it was a very adult role and she fulfilled it perfectly.

I actually first saw her in "Coming Home" (I'm a Joanna Lumley fan as well), and I remember thinking that she was a striking young girl....then a few weeks later POC came out...it took me a few minutes into the movie saying "I've seen this girl before" until I figured it out....but, I've been a Keira fan ever since.

So far, I'd have to say my favorite movie that Keira has been in is Pirates of the Caribbean. Keira and everyone else(especially Johnny Depp) just did such a great job in the film, and I loved the plot. Not to mention the fact that I have a strong intrest in Pirates.

- the jacket is my favourite. The job both she and Brody did on the film was astounding (and her having to pick up a yank accent in a short amount of time) and that seen at the end where adrien brody comes out of the freezer and says to Dr. Becker we haunt you Brilliant. At the end it also gave me that weird feeling of refreshment only good films can give you.

Its got to be Pirates of the Caribbean for me... I fell in love with her in that movie.

I also love Bend it like Beckham as I am a fan of womens footie.

Well, I haven't seen all of her movies yet, I have yet to see Pure and The Hole. But from what I have seen I'd say Domino is at the top right now, and maybe coming in second is Bend if like Beckham. It's really hard to choose just because she really knows how to pick good roles.

Pride and Prejudice for sure. She is excellent, everyone is excellent. It is a beautiful love story. I fell in love with Mr Darcy.
