‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ gained popularity at the speed of light when it released. Everyone started talking about it, for obvious reasons. But many pointed out the birth of a future superstar: Dakota Johnson. A relatively new face in the industry, she has taken the challenge of doing different accents, and playing different role. From playing a Washington common girl in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, to perfecting the Boston accent in ‘Black Mass’, her dedication and execution stands out. With the capability to floor the world with her efficacious smile, Johnson is surely a force to be reckoned with, already having three films in line for 2018. Here is the list of top 8 Dakota Johnson movies and TV shows. Happy reading!
8. Ben and Kate (2012-13)
The starting point of her career was short-lived. The series focuses on a brother and sister, both drastically different from the other. Treading carefree on their respective paths in life, the goofy brother realises her sister’s silent cries for help, and moves in with he to help out. The mantra of keeping it simple actually worked for the series, which enticed to deliver the goods during its airing. Alas, it wasn’t to be, spoiling some good work by the lead cast.
7. Vale (2015)
This sweet short film, about a group of Spanish friends meeting a beautiful English-speaking girl, is funny and kind in its core. Johnson is the star attraction here, playing the role of Rachel, the English-speaking girl. Commanding attention and praises with her worthy performance, the actress does a fine job creating the perfect illusion: hope. Receptive and pleasant in nature, Rachel is the subject of romantic overtures of Victor. A finely tuned film which will definitely not disappoint you.
6. Cymbeline (2014)
Shakespeare plays are gradually finding their feet and relevance in today’s fast-paced world. Shedding the cloak of conservatism and dogmatic undermining of territorial wars, ‘Cymbeline’ traverses the modern path of selfishness and envy with utmost dexterity. Gang wars are always a fun watch, albeit done well. The film does have traces of that, although gets lost in attempting to do a lot with very less. War erupts between dirty cops and outlaw bikers as a drug kingpin tries to protect his empire. Imogen was a difficult character to play. Carefree, tightly-wounded, and inherently an outcast, Dakota’s brilliant exposition of the character was simply a treat.
5. Date and Switch (2014)
Continuing this growing cadence of light-hearted romantic comedies is this fine effort by Chris Nelson. The flick is an unconventional and stymied take on a hunky and macho man, in all the senses, realising his homosexuality and coming to terms with it. His support brigade: a straight best-friend, his kind ex-girlfriend, and an eclectic pairing of conservative and liberal parents. The hugely funny film has some great scenes, knitted together to perfection. The brisk-paced narrative is appealing and endearing in its scope and intentions.
