Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey

I can already feel the eyes rolling from here and, to some degree, I understand. Roll them if you must, but my vision was firmly planted on the sublime Dakota Johnson for the entirety of Sam Taylor-Johnson's much-mocked but not-half-bad adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Johnson imbues her unexceptional wallflower role with incredibly compelling layers of humor, detail, and indecision, finding a real and fully-realized girl where once was only an empty vessel of subhuman eroticism.
