Clouds of Sils Maria (2014) – 91%
Jo-Ann Ellis in The Clouds of Sils Maria, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.The cast of Clouds of Sils Maria, which stars Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and of course Chloe Grace Moretz, is as outstanding as the movie itself. It has won awards from Sundance Selects, Les Film du Losange, and Filmcoopi Zürich. She plays Jo-Ann Ellis, a troublesome actress who collaborates with Maria Enders, the lead character played by Juliette Binoche. Jo-Ann’s plotting and character growth seem to personify the contentious paths that many young performers appear to take as a result of fame, riches, and freedom.
Hugo (2011) – 93%
Hugo transports viewers on a mind-blowing and inspirational voyage that takes them to Paris for a perilous and thrilling adventure. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, a large children’s book, served as the inspiration for the movie, which brought its vividly illustrated world from the page to the screen. Moretz portrays Isabelle, the inquisitive goddaughter of Georges Méliès, the proprietor of a toy store, who assists Hugo on his own trip.
Kick-Ass (2010) – 76%
In Kick-Ass, Chloe Grace Moretz plays Hit-Girl.One of the many reasons Lionsgate Kick-Ass is a great movie is without a doubt Mortez’s inclusion to the cast. Her performance as the young antihero Hit-Girl and Mindy Macready is perhaps both her most enduring and instantly recognisable character, dual or otherwise. Hit-Girl’s inclusion in the movie series adds to its renown, although being a little contentious given the character’s vulgarity and Moretz’s age as a tween at the time.
Laggies (2014) – 65%
In Laggies, Chloe Grace Moretz plays Annika.An earlier A24 movie, A24 Laggies, centres on a woman in her late 20s named Megan who becomes friends with a teenage girl named Annika (Moretz) after Megan’s life throws her for a loop. The two develop different perspectives on growing up as they become increasingly involved in each other’s lives and concerns. Odie Henderson points out in a review for Roger Ebert that “[Moretz’s] emotional moments [in the film] nourish the other actors’ responses, elevating everyone in the scene.”
Let Me In (2010) – 88%
In the 2010 film Let Me In, Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee star.One of Moretz’s earlier horror films, Let Me In from Overture Films, which came before Dark Shadows and Carrie, demonstrates just how brilliantly she has shone in the genre from a young age. In this film, she plays a young girl named Abby who develops a friendship with Owen (Kodi Smit-Phee), a neighbour who is the same age as her, and aids him in overcoming the bullying that he has experienced. However, Abby has her own worries as well, and Owen quickly learns that she is a vampire, which means she is naturally bloodthirsty.
Shadow in the Cloud (2020) – 77%
In the movie Shadow in the Cloud, Mortez plays Maude Garrett, a tenacious pilot officer who takes a chance to fly a Flying Fortress to Samoa to deliver a crucial item for the Royal Air Force. Being an all-male team in a story set during World War II is to be expected, but Moretz’s performance and on-screen presence make Maude stand out. The movie has a similar atmosphere to the Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” since her character notices a worrisome creature while they are in the clouds.
Suspiria (2018) – 65%
The 2018 update to Suspiria transformed the original 1977 edition into a brand-new hell. If you’re not familiar with the captivating tale, it depicts how the Markos Tanz dance group operates at the cutting edge of both creativity and physical prowess. Patricia, the observant character played by Mortez, ultimately decides to leave the group as what initially appears to be psychological suffering quickly spirals into much more serious conditions along with the rest of the group.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) – 86%
The Miseducation of Cameron Post may not be the most upbeat choice among queer films, but its existence is crucial. Its plot, which is based on the book after which it was also named, highlights the cruelty that LGBTQ+ persons experience when they are compelled to undergo conversion therapy. The brave main character Cameron, played by Moretz, serves as a representation of the typical teenagers and adults who endure such trying circumstances in real life.
The Peripheral (2022) – 78%
Moretz plays Flynne Fisher in the more recent Amazon Prime Video series The Peripheral. Flynne escapes her ordinary environment by engaging in an intense, futuristic type of gaming, which ultimately transforms her entirely and irrevocably. She is chosen to test out a new technology, blurring the distinctions between the actual world and the created one encroaching upon it. The Peripheral by William Gibson, the inspiration for this series’ dazzling aesthetic, comes to life thanks to Mortez’s commitment to her acting.
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2013) – 100%
Isao Takahata’s magnificent animation film, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, is based on the Japanese monogatari The Tale of the Woodcutter. The animation’s hand-drawn look distinguishes it from other stories given through the visual arts, and in the English version, Moretz voices Princess Kaguya.
The Princess’s transformation into a royal figure and encounter with the more sinister aspects of her destiny are both explored in the movie. This English dub opens up Japanese media to larger Western audiences, just like so many other English dubs.
