Her first film was Silent Fall, and she later appeared in Heavy, directed by James Mangold. That film did well and became a cult classic. Following that, she appeared in another enjoyable film, Empire Records. But Stealing Beauty, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, catapulted her to stardom at eighteen.
