7. REBECCA HALL AS VICKY IN VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA (2008)Allen’s 2008 sex comedy was a return to form for the venerable director. A change of scenery and a cast full of fresh blood seemed to give him a jolt of life after a few down years. Featuring some impeccable cinematography in Barcelona, Allen put together a gorgeous cast to match the classic city. And Rebecca Hall, while not an obvious choice, proved to have the type of accessible beauty that Allen gravitates towards.
It takes a veteran eye like Woody Allen’s to truly see the beauty in every one his cast members, and the criminally underrated Hall has never looked better than she did under the watchful lens of Allen.
