Girl Crush Mondays: Rooney Mara

Patricia Rooney Mara
She's relatively a fresh face and if she looks familiaryou probably saw her in
The Social Networkas Erica Albright, the gal who dumped and scorned
Mark Zuckerburg played by Jessie Eisenburg.

But hold tight to your seats because come next year she'll be one of THE girls to watch.
With the upcoming release of
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
I'm sure you'll be fascinated not only with her transformation
but with how well she played the part.
Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is part of the late Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy.
I've read the series and saw the Swede version of all three movies.
I'll be honest, the book and movie series were spectacular, brings back memories of my old love affair with Sydney Sheldon. It also touched on a lot of socially relative issues from abuse, white slavery, discrimination to alternative lifestyles.
A very compelling series from start to finish.

The movies were fantastic as well, it stayed true to Larsson's novels
which is why the films are about 2.5 hours each.
Noomi Rapace was fantastic as Lisbeth Salander so in my book
 I have high hopes for Rooney Mara in terms of measuring up to the Swede version. 
However the rest of the cast wasn't really eye candy so visually,
I think I'll like the U.S. version better.

  1. It would have been great if Noomi Repace would have been casted as Lisbeth in the US version but since they're trying to make it their own I'm happy with Rooney. She beat out top young actresses (Portman, Johnasson) for this highly coveted roll (and I'm glad they picked someone less famous). With David Fincher as Director and Steven Zallian as screenwriter, Daniel Craig as Mikael and a solid supporting cast, I have high hopes for this to be a fantastic film.

  2. I only wish the filmmakers would have found a role for Alexander Skarsgard. I mean the man IS swedish. HAHA.

  3. Yup I loved Noomi but looking at her transformation and how passionate she is about the role is promising.

  4. I saw the movie on Christmas Day and I found it to be engrossing, harrowing, always interesting, well made and a bit complicated. I never watched the originals (which I will now) but the acting in this one was top notch. Rooney Mara was very good here. Now I have to check on the originals and get back to you. ;)

  5. Yamilette- you will love Noomi Rapace too
