“Kirsten Dunst deserves an apology, and a second look, from all of us.”
I’m a college student getting my Master’s in English, but dreams of getting an additional degree in Film. I’m a movie reviewer for several sites, but I also write classic film reviews for several other sites. I stretch myself pretty thin these days. You can usually find me at a bookstore, or a movie theater. I dream of the day when the two are combined. I base a lot of my friendships on favorite movies.
“Dunst remains in control of her persona, but she’s also at the mercy of Hollywood scheming.”
“Marie Antoinette has become queen and left her partying days behind.”
“Between ‘Elizabethtown,’ ‘Marie Antoinette’ and ‘Spider-Man 3,’ Dunst’s life and art begin to imitate each other.”
“Dunst’s roles from 1998 to 2002 illustrate her need to conform to studio standards of femininity, balanced with her own personal desire to stretch her wings as a performer.”
“Unlike former child stars Natalie Wood or Margaret O’Brien, Kirsten Dunst’s adolescent career is a state of becoming.”
“Andrea Arnold’s work encapsulates the liminal stage of feminine adolescence.”
