First movie I ever saw her in was The Poker House. Knew nothing about her back then.
The movie was utter shit. The only reason I kept watching was because she was KILLING IT!!! I was like "who is this girl???". And then I saw her in Winter's Bone and I told everyone she was gonna win an Oscar within the next 5-10 yrs.
Had a very similar reaction to Jessica Chastain. First saw her in Tree of Life, and she broke my heart. She will also pull Academy hardware very, very soon.
