I love the premise behind the story, Jodie acting is as spot on as usual, which I mean as a compliment. So many alien movies have us in fear, but in this story our alien cousins are asisting us humans to visit them; however, we have to build the ship, therefore showing a degree of intelligence. They I presume are keen to keep there distance incase we are hostile; it could be the first of many encounters, but we have to be worthy.

Her sincerity in needing scientific proof for a belief in something she cannot quantify is tangible. Such an amazing performance.

Another very good movie by Jodie foster. very good and seen a few times. a very good actor in my books Mrs. Foster

Fabulous performance from her heart; passion in her portrayal in conviction.

2 Freaky Friday

This is a classic body swap comedy and it shouldn't have been recently remade as the remake is rubbish in comparison

3 The Accused

the way she fight for herself and the way she proof her self is very touchy specially when she describe about what happened to her to praiseworthy

This was a simply great film. It was very moving when her hard shell cracked towards the end and she became a much nicer character - although I personally loved her character from the beginning, she had a bit of icewater in her veins!

Love this movie, I use 2 watch it every time it comes on

Loved this movie

4 The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane

Rynn Jacobs is, in my opinion, the most complex character Jodie ever played. She is a dark soul, mature beyond her years, brilliant, fiercely individualistic, mysterious, tragic, both haunted and haunting, and sexy in a very disturbing way. As a whole, this film is profoundly disturbing on so many levels.

R u kidding silence of the lambs taxi driver and the little girl who lives down the lane r her only great movies silence 1 barely little girl just behind then taxi driver way behind

5 Taxi Driver

silence of the lambs is up there but taxi driver remains one of the best character studied s ever put on film and foster is nearly as amazing as de niro!

Playing a prostitute at 12 yrs of age... NOT an easy job

This should be number 2, and as an overall movie is better than Silence of the Lambs. Her role is pivital of how a young runaway is depicted and how hard they have to survive. - jerielcastilloaponte

6 The Silence of the Lambs

6th?! This is definitely her best performance. It should be first. - guccigangkid69

Better than contact

Best movie ever!

8 The Brave One

Underrated performance...underrated movie

Absolute action from start to finish, another amazing performance by jodie foster and I can't believe is is rated above flight plan even though that was a fave film too, but this film should be rated 2nd or 3rd not 8th, if you haven't watched it folks this is brill

Ever since I watched this movie, I was more idolized Jodie Foster. Her acting are incredible touch story. My golden thumbs up for you and for this film..

Fabulous movie

Just watched this again; remembering how it affected me the first time... A wonderful movie and so well acted by all involved. Jodie Foster has done some very superb work over the years.. Looking forward to more from her!

One of the finest movies I've ever seen. It lingered in my thoughts for days. The acting and story line were amazing. WOW to movies like this that don't have a scrap of CG just solid REAL talent!

great move

10 Foxes

My mother and I were both devoted Jody foster fans. Worried that she was slipping down a dangerous path to her career with a movie with Foxes as it's title decided to watch it anyway. Man, were we in shock. Poignant, reveiling and emotional we both agreed this would go down as one of our favoret Jody clasics.
Thank You
