Margot Robbie is counted along with these hardworking few. The story of Robbie from Australian soap operas to the tinsel town of Hollywood is ever-inspiring. She worked in films, commercials, and soap operas.

    Margot played Tristan Waters in Aash Aaron’s thriller ‘I.C.U.’ in 2009. Later, she had a good run on the soap opera ‘Neighbors’, an important show for many actors including her.

    10) About Time

    One has to live each moment with the repercussions it presents us. Richard Curtis, a sort of magician in the romantic genre presents us with this thought in 2013’s ‘About Time’. The film stars Bill Nighy as James Lake, Domhall Gleeson as Tim Lake, and Rachel McAdams as Mary. The male members of the Lake family have a gift of time travel.

    It is the celluloid debut of Margot Robbie who plays James Lake’s sister, Kit Kat’s friend Charlotte. She is the summer romance of Tim Lake, but nothing happens between them. But, a chance encounter gives him another opportunity after she rejects him the first time (once in real-time and second in time travel). However, Tim declines the offer to be with Mary.

    9) Z For Zachariah

    ‘Z for Zachariah’ is a 2015 Sundance Film that has a lot to unpack in its devastated land due to the nuclear apocalypse. The only survivor is Ann Burden played by Margot Robbie. The film is directed by Craig Zobel. It was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. The film also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as John, a broody government personnel. The two have to live (survive) together in this poisoned land. But, faith intervenes between their survival opportunities. Chris Pine plays Caleb in this 1974 adaptation of Robert C O’Brien’s novel.

    8) Terminal


    The ‘Terminal’ won the ‘Excellence in Production Design Award’ at the Art Directors Guild. One may think that there is only style and no substance to this Vaughn Stein noir, but they are wrong. The film is set in a quaint, dark town where you have to be “as mad as a hatter” to survive.

    The line comes from the film’s narrator, film fatal, sociopathic waitress, and anchor throughout the film, Bonnie played by the actress.

    The film boils down to the performance and the not-so-convincing philosophical conversation between Bonnie and Bill played by Simon Pegg who misses a train when he decides to take his life.

    7) Dreamland


    Visually appealing and interestingly staged drama, ‘Dreamland’ stars Margot Robbie as Allison, a fugitive, and Finn Cole, Eugene Evans, a lonely teenage boy. Evans’ father leaves him when he is young to chase his golden-eyed dream to Mexico. He aspires to do the same. So, he becomes an outlaw with Allison, but as they move ahead, Eugene does not have a good feeling about his Mexican dream.

    6) The Wolf Of Wall Street

    Martin Scorsese gave Margot Robbie her breakthrough role in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ as Naomi Lapaglia. It is based on the real-life story of Jordan Belfort, a stock trader who earned a fortune with delinquent behavior. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Belfort with a sort of ease that was absent in his previous performances due to the baggage of being a star. Robbie hit it out of the park with her Brooklyn accent.

    5) Amsterdam


    It is a baffling stylized piece of cinema from David O’Russell starring Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, and John David Washington. It is based on an actual conspiracy that shook the United States of America in the 1930s. The film starts with two murders of a woman and her father in different manners.

    He is a senior officer to Burt and Harold played by Bale and Washington, respectively. When one is getting the grip on the film, we are transported to a flashback of 1918. This connects us to the murder. It is not the most cohesive piece, but Robbie’s Valerie adds a zing by playing a Belgian nurse with a magnetic, carefree personality.

    4) Birds Of Prey

    After an invincible performance as Harley Quinn in ‘The Suicide Squad’, Margot Robbie’s ‘Birds of Prey’ anti-heroine feels more powerful and kickass! The emancipation story of Quinn also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Rosie Perez as Detective Renee Montoya. After a breakup with her boyfriend Joker, she is on a run. She has to fight the Black Mask and other goons in Gotham City. This time around she has her girl’s squad with her.

    3) Babylon


    Commercialization of Hollywood tramples the dreams of several aspirational, rising talents. It includes Diego Calva’s Manuel Torres and Margot Robbie’s Nellie LeRoy. Damien Chazelle’s ‘Babylon’ takes us on the journey of the big bad world of Hollywood from its eras in a very theatrical and over-the-top way retelling the history of Hollywood.

    2) Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood

    It is Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the charm of 60s Hollywood. ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, once a big star, and now working on supporting characters. Cliff Booth, played by the maverick Brad Pitt, is a stunt double and a longtime associate of Dalton.

    It is set in the past, but its milieu represents the present Hollywood. It is one of the best performances of Robbie as Sharon Tate. She structures the character by complementing its complexities without playing with the stereotypes set in the period.

    1) Bombshell


    ‘Bombshell’ is an interesting take on the #MeToo movement that rightfully spread across the film industry and other sectors. It revolves around women from Fox News. Nicole Kidman’s Gretchen Carlson files a lawsuit against Roger Ailes. This helps several women to voice their discontent and experiences out. It also stars Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie. Robbie received a nomination for ‘Best Actress in Supporting Role’ for the film. It is a satirical take on the movement against a conservative background but it still sprawls for women’s rights.
