7 ICONIC FILMS WITH ROBERT PATTINSON
On the 34th birthday of Robert Pattinson,the English actor, we remember his iconic parts
"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", 2005
Despite the fact that Pattinson played his first film role in 2004 in the "Ring of the Nibelungs", the actor's debut is still considered to be "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". Robert's character - the blond Cedric Diggory competed with Harry for the girl's heart and the Cup of the magic tournament.
The role of the vampire Edward brought Pattinson worldwide fame. Books and films describing the love relationship of an immortal young man and an ordinary girl Bella became a kind of symbol of the generation and ignited several stars at once – Pattinson very successfully continued his acting career, and Kristen Stewart became the Chanel face.
"Water for elephants!", 2011
The touching love story of circus actors, based on the novel by Sarah Gruen, revealed Pattinson as a serious dramatic actor. Robert's partners were Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. The plot of the film is set during the great depression: veterinarian Jacob Jenkowski goes on a trip with a traveling circus and, as usual, falls in love with the Director's wife.
"Bel Ami", 2012
The role of Georges Duroy is one of Pattinson's best roles. The film adaptation of the novel by the French classic Guy de Maupassant has gathered a brilliant cast: Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas.
The plot of the film tells about the life and career of Georges Duroy who comes to Paris to try his luck. Serving as a clerk at a railway station, Duroy can not find prospects for career growth and ekes out a miserable existence in a cheap apartment. But life changes completely when he meets his old army friend Forestier, who offers him a job at the newspaper where he works. The main trump card of Duroy is an incredible ability to fall in love with any woman (which he successfully uses). The film is not only a vivid description of Duroy love adventures, but also depicts in detail the life and customs of French society of the XIX century.
Sexy, successful, depressing. In this role, Robert Pattinson combined the main qualities of all his previous characters.
The film tells the story of a day in the life of stock speculator Eric Packer. He is 28 years old, good-looking and fabulously rich. Early in the morning, he decides to drive his luxury car across Manhattan, engulfed by protests, to get a haircut at the barbershop where his father took him years ago. This Packer's journey through the city reveals his fatal emptiness, lack of purpose in life and an unconscious craving for death. At the end of the film, he is overtaken by an equally self-destructive former subordinate. Like many others, he sees Packer as the epitome of modern capitalism and blames him for his own failures...
