Focus Actresses Dominate W's "Brave Ones"

Posted August 12, 2010

Brave Ones

The cover story of the September issue of W magazine is a feature by Lynn Hirschberg called "The Brave Ones." The article profiles a group of actresses, "none of [whom] are living in the margins of men. They’re creating complex characters that are often at the center of the film. [They are] a generation of fearless, fiercely talented actresses who are putting the boys to shame."

Of the eight actresses profiled here, four have given notable performances in Focus Features movies in 2010: Greta Gerwig from Greenberg, Yaya DaCosta from The Kids Are All Right, and Emma Roberts and Zoe Kravitz from It's Kind of a Funny Story, forthcoming this September.
