I have this theory that Keira Knightley plays the same character in nearly every movie and gets lauded by critics as if she’s reinvented the wheel every time. With the exception of films like Domino, The Jacket, and Love Actually, Knightley is always cast a period film heroine from an upper-crust family who slums it with a poor guy or wins the heart of a rich cad. To prove my theory, I’ve assembled pictures of six of Keira’s most famous characters. See if you can match the letter of the image to the number of the film. FYI, I’ll reveal the answers at the end of the day, so check back.
THE FILMS: Atonement (1); The Duchess (2); King Arthur (3); Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (4); Pride & Prejudice (5); Silk (6)
