Absolutely agree with you.

Period pieces, by and large, are meatier roles. The quiet nature of the films allow for characters to dwell in silent thought and reveal more about their character than a page of dialogue. Keira's good at this. Very few actresses are.
Besides, she's only 23. She's got a lot of time to do a lot of different roles.

Good day andrey.

I hope that your comment will reach keira or her manager to better satisfy her followers. You want to see her in movies where she could display her versatility.

However, what you have mentioned are basically about the plots. Perhaps you are tired of them. but it doesn't mean Keira is not a good actress. What makes an actor/tress good or better is on how he/she portrays the character of his/her role. The keira's movies you have watched shows that she is a good actress. she could act the different personalities and characters of the roles required.

thank you. keep on giving constructive criticisms.

For recording, i am not talking about keiras roleplay, it is great, i am talking about films. Much of thems are history films, and that is that homogeneous in keira. There are many of versions about films. Our days, future, in history she have a lot of films.

ask it keira, not me, but all i can say is that, there arent any ideal actor or actress. every of thems are their knack, they all are unique, of course, keira is too, and dont you ask for me questions like this. i can just say - i dont know, because there are not ideals in this world.

The only thing similar between Elizabeths Swann & Bennet are the fact that they were both modern, independent women living in the eighteenth century.
I never once heard Lizzie Bennet fire off a one-liner or saw her get into a swordfight.

So, this is one of small similar things.

Star Wars - Episode I
Science Fiction... decoy for an aristocrat in a galaxy far, far away.

Princess of Thieves
Medieval Period Piece... she played Robin Hood's daughter. Admittedly, this is somewhat similar to the role she played in King Arthur, but much less intense.

Dr. Zhivago
Early 20th Century Period Piece... she played Lara Antipov. No swordfights... just a heartbreaking reprisal of the role made famous by Julie Christie.

Pure
Modern... she played a heroin addicted waitress (prostitute).

The Hole
Modern... she played a snotty rich girl with an eating disorder.

Bend it Like Beckham
Modern... she played a football obsessed teenage tomboy. You might even call it a romantic comedy. It was funny and had romance.

Love Actually
Modern... Juliet in an ensemble romantic comedy.

Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy
18th Century Fantasy/Period Piece... Elizabeth Swann x 3. Swashbuckling and devious 18th century female.

King Arthur
Medieval Period piece... Guinevere. The most unique portrayal of this character to date.

Pride & Prejudice
18th Century Period Piece... played Elizabeth Bennet. 18th century female, minus the swashbuckling and devious nature. Unerringly forthright.

Domino
Modern... Domino Harvey. Badass 21st century female bounty hunter.

The Jacket
Modern... Alcoholic waitress... but American.

Silk
19th Century Period Piece... jilted French wife.

Atonement
Mid 20th Century Period Piece... Cecilia Tallis... star-crossed lover in the leadup to WWII.

The Duchess
18th Century Period Piece... she plays an aristocrat with decadent tastes... both material and sexual.

The Edge of Love
Mid 20th Century Period Piece... she plays a hedonistic woman in a love triangle with a famed poet.

That looks like a pretty broad cross-section to me.

Her medieval characters were about as different as night and day. One was the innocent, yet fiesty daughter of the legendary Robin Hood. The other was a savage warrior in the middle of a love triangle.

Likewise, her 18th Century and WWII era characters run the gamut. Each one, even though they are from the same time period, is unique in its back story and motivation.

As I mentioned previously, her ability allows her to play roles with greater depth to them. These roles tend to be on the more serious side. I'd rather her be typecast in these kind of roles than to be typecast like a Lindsay Lohan or Ashley Judd.

The latter is an example of someone who has played the same role over and over. She always seems to play a damsel in distress in bad thrillers.

of course you arguments are very strong, of course, lohan and love is the same man in other package, and of course, this is my opinion, and how i can see, are wrong, but there are some part of wright, because every actor or actress are some similar things. just look how moves keiras lips and mouth when she is angry. the same mimic. the same smile. character changes, but mimic and movings cant changed so fast, look at small details, i already show - smiles, mimic, reactions ...

of course her face looks the same, she's still the same person whatever role she's playing, she can't change how she looks like when she's acting angry in every new film, that would be impossible!

Like Robert DeNiro? There are comedians that make a living off of DeNiro impersonations. Why? Because his mannerisms are prevalent throughout his body of work.
Pretty much every actor has certain mannerisms that you can see in every character they play. Dustin Hoffman... Tom Hanks... Robin Williams... Meryl Streep... Judi Dench. Take a close look and you'll recognize them.

of course, absolutely change mimic is not real, but some actors have some roles, which comes with him and asociates with that person in every film. maybe you are watching very grandiosly russian tv serial about knaz time "poor nastya"? so, that nastya, whose are firt actress in this film plays very excellent, but vhen i saw her in some other films, she do everything like in that serial, and all the time i can imagine just nastya, not her new role. So, i think keira havent so big problems, but sometimes i have some asociations with other roles, and thats bad for actors level.

keira has talent and if she gets good film roles she would be great in it i think the edge of love will show EVERYONE WHAT KEIRA CAN DO even if the film isn't the best written, and hopefull keira will get more flims like the jacket and Domino the reason she is probably doing simpler role is because the jacket and Domino do that well but Pride & Prejudice did really well and she got an oscar nom for it so she probably don't want to do films like thoughs incase they don't do well also if someone gives her a great script i think she can do very well in it
