Yeah, I think we can safely say that the aim of these directors/producers was to make all of these clips hugely dramatic. That's a given. But I'm talking performance-wise. She was just hugely theatrical, and weirdly enough I've heard she's quite good on the stage so it's possible that's just where she's more suited. But I always have trouble "believing" her when I'm watching her act. I mean, she's not at a Kristen Stewart level of acting, but I can usually see the effort behind Knightley's performances. And I used to wonder if it was because I followed her as a fashion addict and general fan of young, confident women in an industry teeming with (and indeed largely at fault for creating) insecure women. But I don't know. She's just not one of my favorites acting-wise.
