Kristen Stewart: Through The Years


This year’s Cornwall Film Festival will screen Pablo Larraín’s latest, Spencer. Starring Kristen Stewart, the film tells the story of the fateful night that Lady Diana decided to end her marriage to Prince Charles. The film has garnered critical acclaim from international film festivals as well as Oscar buzz for Stewart’s career-best performance.


Before Stewart became Diana, she dabbled in various film genres and worked with master filmmakers like Kelly Reichardt and Olivier Assayas. From blockbusters to indies, the 31-year-old actress has proven her versatility across a wide range of roles since a young age. The Mor Media Charity team shared their personal favourite Kristen Stewart films. Their diverse selections demonstrate Stewart’s talent to deliver unforgettable performances.


CFF business manager Sally Barnett chose Panic Room (2002) as her favourite Kristen Stewart film. As a child actor, Stewart starred in David Fincher’s thriller alongside Jodie Foster and Forest Whitaker. The film marked the launch of Stewart’s career as she gave a memorable performance that was never dwarfed by those of her older co-stars. She embodied complex emotions as the only child of a divorced mother whose new house was under attack.
