EVERYTHING MUST GO

Having worked with many of the industry's most honored talent and treaded the boards in the world's most respected theatres, REBECCA HALL has emerged as a leading talent, challenging herself with each new role.

Recently, Hall was seen in Nicole Holofcener's dramatic comedy "Please Give” opposite Oliver Platt, Catherine Keener and Amanda Peet. The film was an official selection at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca film festivals. In "Please Give,” Hall plays a loving and devoted granddaughter at the center of this human story about two families living in NYC. Upcoming, Hall will star in the highly anticipated Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' romantic crime thriller "The Town," opposite Ben Affleck and Jon Hamm. Directed and adapted for the screen by Affleck, the film is an adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel "Prince of Thieves," which follows the relationship between a bank manager (Hall), the career criminal (Affleck) who stole more than her heart and the dedicated FBI agent (Hamm) who is trying to bust the crook and his gang. In January, Hall will be seen on stage as ‘Viola' in Peter Hall's production of "Twelfth Night,” at the National Theatre in London. The production is being mounted as a celebration of Peter Hall's eightieth birthday.

She recently wrapped production on the dramatic comedy, "Everything Must Go” opposite Will Ferrell. In the film, directed by Dan Rush, Hall stars as ‘Samantha,' a newcomer to a suburban neighborhood who forges a special bond with Nick (Ferrell), a relapsed alcoholic who after losing his job and his wife, decides to live on his front lawn while selling all of his belongings in a yard sale. The film was included in the 2007 "Black List”, an annual list chronicling the best un-produced scripts of the year.

Hall is currently in production on Nick Murphy's debut feature, "The Awakening," starring opposite Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. Set in a post-war world, the psychological thriller follows a woman (Hall) who travels to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumors of an apparent haunting. Just when she thinks she has debunked the ghost theory, she has a chilling spectral encounter that defies all her rational beliefs.

On screen, Hall received critical acclaim for her starring role in Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona” alongside Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem. For her performance, Hall received Golden Globe, BAFTA Orange Rising Star, London Critics Circle and Gotham Award nominations in the performance and breakthrough categories. Hall's credits include Oliver Parker's "Dorian Gray”; Ron Howard's "Frost/Nixon”; for which she shared in a Screen Actors Guild Award® nomination for Outstanding Cast Performance; Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige,” for which she received UK Empire Award and London Critics Circle Award nominations for Best Newcomer; and Tom Vaughan's "Starter for 10,” her feature film debut.

Her television credits include Julian Jarrold's "Red Riding: 1974,” for which she received a BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actress; Philip Martin's "Einstein and Eddington,” Stephen Poliakoff's "Joe's Palace,” Brendan Maher's "Wide Sargasso Sea,” Stuart Orme's "Don't Leave Me This Way,” and Peter Hall's "The Camomile Lawn.”

On the stage, Hall won an Ian Charleson Award for her West End portrayal of ‘Vivie' in "Mrs. Warren's Profession,” under the direction of her father, Peter Hall. She earned a second Ian Charleson Award nomination when she played ‘Roaslind' in "As You Like It,” which opened at the Theatre Royal Bath, and later toured in both the UK and U.S. Her appearances at the Theatre Royal Bath, also include the title role in Timberlake Wertenbaker's "Galileo's Daughter” and as ‘Ann Whitfield' in George Bernard Shaw's "Man and Superman,” both directed by Peter Hall, and "Don Juan” and D H Lawrence's "The Fight for Barbara,” both under the direction of Thea Sharrock. Her more recent stage work includes portraying ‘Varya' in "The Cherry Orchard” and ‘Hermione' in "A Winter's Tale,” receiving an Evening Standard Theatre Award nomination for the latter. Both plays were part of The Bridge Project, a transatlantic company of actors performing on tour in seven cities around the world.
