A star with a view

I saw her recently when I watched a special film called Imitation Game for yet another time. The reason for Keira Knightley, an actress who’s evolved and has left her own imprint.  She has come a long way since the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean” and in a very positive direction.  We’re waiting for her new film The Aftermath; whose plot unfolds in a ruined and shattered Germany right after the end of World War II.  In 1993, she first appeared on the television series Royal Celebration at the age of 7.  In the 1990’s she appeared in the film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.  Her first leading role came in 2001, in Walt Disney’s TV movie, Princess of Thieves.

In 2002, the role that put her in the spotlight was from the film Bend It Like Beckham.  Immediately afterwards, she played in the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which was a huge box office success and received positive reviews, thus securing her position as a leading lady.
