Based on her most compelling characters, strongest film plots and top acting performances, the following is a list of best Teresa Palmer movies, along with some additional titles for you to consider. Feel free to add a comment below if you want to speak on behalf of another title!
If you watch this Ross Katz-directed film and get a familiar feel, you aren’t alone. The Choice was based on a book by Nicholas Sparks, best known for The Notebook. Palmer plays Gabby, a young pre-med student who doesn’t know what she is in for when she moves in next to Travis (Benjamin Walker) in a small coastal town. Travis, a notorious ladies man, is intrigued by Gabby’s aversions to his flirtations. Her boyfriend, and serious commitment to her studies, don’t mesh with his relaxed lifestyle. However, his persistence and connection to the local vet (his dad played by Tom Wilkinson) soon win her over. What develops is a heartwarming, but turbulent, romantic tale.
Andrew Garfield stole the show in Hacksaw Ridge, but Palmer was solid in the leading lady role as Dorothy Schutte, his love interest and wife in this Mel Gibson-directed film inspired by true events during WWII. Desmond Doss (Garfield) initially drew the ire of fellow soldier’s when religious viewed caused him to refuse to carry a rifle or kill. However, his heroic efforts, including saving 75 men at the Battle of Okinawa, became stuff of legends. You could argue that this is Teresa Palmer’s best movie, but her more limited role affected this ranking.
Warm Bodies, directed by Jonathan Levine, is one of the best and funniest zombie movies that typical film goers haven’t seen. Palmer plays Julie, the daughter of an Army general (John Malkovich) and part of a rebel alliance fending off a zombie takeover.
Without realizing that he is responsible for her boyfriend’s (Dave Franco) death, Julie reluctantly befriends a young zombie she dubs “R” (Nicholas Hoult). Julie’s affection helps R fight his blood-hungry urges, and the pair works together to flee danger. The originality of the human-zombie romance, combined with consistent comic relief (including R’s interactions with zombie friend M played by Rob Corddry), make it a hidden gym in the land of the undead.
Other best Teresa Palmer movies deserving of consideration include (in descending chronological order): Triple 9 (2016), The Ever After (2014), Cut Bank (2014)
