If you’re a fan of Shailene Woodley, then you know her upcoming film “Snowden” will arrive in theaters on May 13, 2016, writes Entertainment Weekly.
If you’re excited to see the film, then check out our list of the three reasons why we can’t wait to see Woodley portray Edward Snowden’s girlfriend Lindsay Mills!
01. She’ll Show Directors She’s A Versatile Actress
Starring in “Snowden” will be a great boost for Woodley’s acting career because it will show Hollywood directors that she is a versatile actress.
If Woodley wows both critics and movie viewers when the film opens in theaters next year, then she may have less of a chance of being typecast as the “quirky girlfriend” or “stereotypical strong female character.”
02. Woodley’s Performance Will Keep Fans On The Edge Of Their Seats
Although many people know Edward Snowden’s story, it’s one thing to hear about what he did and another to watch it play out on screen.
Given that Woodley is an excellent actress, her performance will likely tug on the viewers’ heartstrings.
The real-life Lindsay Mills had to make a difficult choice, and she wound up following her boyfriend into exile in Russia, adds The Guardian.
There’s a good chance that the “Snowden” movie will explore Mills’ emotions after discovering that her boyfriend leaked classified information from the NSA.
03. She Could Win An Oscar
“Snowden” is shaping up to be a thrilling and dramatic movie, which is vastly different from “The Fault In Our Stars” or the “Divergent” series.
Given that Woodley has not played anyone like the character Lindsay Mills, she’ll get a chance to expand her acting range. Do you think she could win an Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” for her “Snowden” role?
