Ellen Page: Indie Darling, or Blockbuster Queen?
Get yourself an onscreen ingenue who can do both.
Ellen Page cut her teeth playing preternaturally sophisticated teens in compelling (and sometimes controversial) indie flicks like Hard Candy, Juno, The Tracey Fragments, and Whip It. But she’s also played iconic mutant Kitty Pryde (twice), starred as dream-world architect Ariadne in Inception, and will play a doctor playing a little fast and loose with that old Hippocratic Oath in the soon-to-be-released Flatliners sequel (also starring Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, and Kiefer Sutherland in a reprisal of his role in the first film). The fact that she can move so gracefully in and out of the mainstream makes Page seem destined for nothing but more great roles and invitations to awards shows, whether they’re sponsored by MTV or the Academy.
