The actress, who has gotten good notices for the films "Silent House" and "Martha Marcy May Marlene," has just finished the Spike Lee-directed film "Old Boy" opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin.

Her other films include "Liberal Arts" opposite Josh Radnor and Zac Efron, and "Red Lights," with Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver. She and Dakota Fanning also play best friends in "Very Good Girls," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
