Australian (I had no idea!) actress Alice Englert is starting to turn into one of those “where do I know her from?” frock flicks actors, so I thought it was time for a WCW so I could remember where I know her from!
Hope in New Worlds (2014)
Set in the late 17th century, as people (including Hope/Englert) are trying to create a “new world” in colonial New England as well as old England. Hope is an independent tomboy.
Lady Emma Pole in Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell (2015)
Set in a magical version of Regency England, Lady Emma is resurrected from the dead. Among other things!
Dolly in Ratched (2020)
A prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), about an evil 1950s psychiatric nurse. She’s a second-tier character, a nurse who’s a nymphomaniac (well that doesn’t inspire me to want to watch this).
Buster in The Power of the Dog (2020)
I looked high and wide for a pic of Englert in this film, a “revisionist Western psychological thriller” directed by Jane Campion, but no dice. Buster isn’t a big enough character to reach the plot summary on Wikipedia, so honestly, I got nothing.
Biliana in You Won’t Be Alone (2020)
A horror film in which “a naive peasant girl in 19th century Macedonia is taken from a sheltered life of solitude, turned into a shapeshifter by a witch, then abandoned,” per Wikipedia. The plot summary is too convoluted for me to explain who Biliana is, but basically the shapeshifter takes on her form at one point.
Camille in Dangerous Liaisons (2022)
She’s the new and improved scheme-y Marquise de Merteuil in this 1780s-set reboot/prequel to the Pierre Choderlos de Laclos novel/play and films adapted from the novel.
Okay, what do YOU know Alice Englert from?
