Anna Kendrick & Kristen Stewart’s Films Rank in Top 10 Best Films of 2009

In addition to The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Kristen Stewart and Anna Kendrick also enjoyed the release of their other work in 2009 – work which has been noted and celebrated by critics. 

Kristen Stewart’s Adventureland came out this spring, and Anna Kendrick’s Up In The Air has been released in limited locations but will be fully released on Christmas Day.

According to the New Yorker, these are two must-see films of 2009 – some of the best of the year, in fact. Writer David Denby describes Adventureland as a “lovely memory of a misspent summer at a tacky Pittsburgh amusement park in the early eighties” and says that Stewart “turns those eyes on Jesse Eisenberg, a toothless non-vampire, as he struggles toward manhood.”

About Up In The Air, Denby says “what’s good in Jason Reitman’s adaptation of Walter Kirn’s novel is very good.” While he doesn’t explicitly note Kendrick’s performance in the film, that goes without saying – especially considering all of the rampant buzz surrounding her performance.

Also noted in the list is Summit Entertainment’s The Hurt Locker, which is said to be “Hair-raising.”

Good list, eh? The ladies of Twilight sure do know how to make a splash!
