MARRIAGE STORY (2019)

In many ways, the leading performance in Noah Baumbach’s critically garlanded drama Marriage Story sees Johansson playing against type. De-glamourised with hair cut boyishly short, she plays actor Nicole in the process of divorcing theatre director Charlie (Adam Driver).

UNDER THE SKIN (2013)

Ditching Hollywood for inner-city Scotland, Johansson’s most challenging role to date sees her cast a dead-eyed, predatory alien seductress in Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi inflected horror film Under the Skin.
