Welcome to the Rileys (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
On a business trip to New Orleans, a damaged man seeks salvation by caring for a wayward young woman. (110 mins.)
Director: Jake Scott
“ By far the best performance by Stewart I have ever seen. She plays emotionally damaged very well because she isn't 100% cold to people. She is cautious and short-tempered. Before seeing this film I had never really seen her prove she could full go there. It also wasn't really a form of sexual exploitation like some assumed given the fact that she was playing a stripper. The stripping was used as more of a backdrop. Honestly is more of a tie with Speak but something about this one pushed it to #1. ” - pretty_hate99

Speak (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
After a blurred trauma over the summer, Melinda enters high school a selective mute. Struggling with school, friends, and family, she tells the dark tale of her experiences, and why she has chosen not to speak. (89 mins.)
Director: Jessica Sharzer
“ Given how young she was this movie was incredible. She found a way to relate in a way that I hadn't seen again until Welcome to the Rileys. Playing a rape victim probably wasn't an easy task especially at the age she was at and she did it well. I have read interviews where she admits to knowing the subject matter but not ever having any experience with it. To go in on pure imagination she shined. ” - pretty_hate99

The Runaways (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
A coming-of-age biographical film about the 1970s teenage all-girl rock band The Runaways. This film also explores the relationship between band members Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. (106 mins.)
“ The movie as a whole wasn't that great but her portrayal of Joan Jett was fantastic. You can really take it to heart given the fact that Jett was so involved with the project. You also can't ignore her talent with this one when it comes to singing and playing guitar. If she ever wanted to follow the actor turned rock star approach others have, like Juliette Lewis, she would succeed. The girl has a good voice. ” - pretty_hate99

Adventureland (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X

Director: Greg Mottola
“ This movie deserved more than it got. All of the characters were well developed and I feel like Stewart ran with what she was given and came out on top. Very pleasant surprise and touching role. ” - pretty_hate99

Panic Room (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X

Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life. (148 mins.)
Director: Sean Penn
“ She wasn't in this one a whole lot, maybe 5-7 minutes total for the diehards who would watch this just to see her, but in that short about of time she touches you. She also shows off that her vocal and guitar skill was there before filming The Runaways. ” - pretty_hate99

Fierce People (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: Griffin Dunne
“ Similar to Adventureland, this was another film that deserved more than it got. Stewart was still pretty young but her character allowed her to expand a bit and be a little more free. It's nice to see her show off the skills she had before being cast in Twilight where they seemed to have gone out the window completely. ” - pretty_hate99
