All Felicity Jones Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

Before starring in the first Fresh Star Wars spin-off (we know, we know, you can’t believe The Ewok Adventure is Rotten), Felicity Jones built an impressive resume in her native Britain, where she had been working as an actress since the age of 12. The Worst Witch and its sequel Weirdster College are beloved in certain circles of English millennials, and Jones graduated after that into movies like Flashbacks of a Fool with Daniel Craig, and Brideshead Revisited. Her start in America came with the 2011 romantic drama Like Crazy with Anton Yelchin, which was able to pick up extra headlines for also co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, who was on the cusp of Hunger Games megastardom.

Upwards career trajectory in the 2010s suggests that you haven’t made it until you’re in a superhero movie. With Jones, it was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (Hey, it doesn’t say the superhero movie had to be actually good.) Jones played Felicia Hardy, who would’ve gone on to become Black Cat, had Sony not given Spider-Man over to Marvel Studios for an MCU makeover. That same year, she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar with The Theory of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne, who did win an Oscar for it.

By 2016, she was picking up blockbuster work: A Monster Calls (which critics loved, but no one saw); Inferno (which critics hated, but some people saw); and Rogue One (which the critics loved, and everyone saw). The packed filming schedule and Rogue One‘s famously troubled production may have been what led Jones to a quiet 2017, before returning in 2018 with On the Basis of Sex, portraying Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That was her only movie that year, and likewise in 2019, she’s got the one: The Aeronauts, a survival adventure of air balloon pioneers that reunites her with Redmayne. She takes to the skies, and we’re taking a look back with all Felicity Jones movies, ranked by Tomatometer!


Collide (2016)

Adjusted Score: 26293%

Directed By: Eran Creevy

Directed By: Ron Howard


The Tempest (2010)

Adjusted Score: 33000%
Critics Consensus: Director Julie Taymor's gender-swapping of roles and some frenzied special effects can't quite disguise an otherwise stagey, uninspired take on Shakespeare's classic.

Directed By: Julie Taymor

Adjusted Score: 36391%

Directed By: Baillie Walsh


True Story (2015)

Adjusted Score: 51832%
Critics Consensus: James Franco and Jonah Hill make a watchable pair, but True Story loses their performances -- and the viewer's interest -- in a muddled movie that bungles its fact-based tale.
Synopsis: New York Times journalist Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) loses his job when it's revealed that he was not entirely truthful... [More]
Directed By: Rupert Goold


Chéri (2009)

Adjusted Score: 55646%

Directed By: Stephen Frears


Albatross (2011)

Directed By: Niall MacCormick

Adjusted Score: 65002%
Critics Consensus: While the cast is outstanding and the special effects are top-notch, the latest installment of the Spidey saga suffers from an unfocused narrative and an overabundance of characters.

Directed By: Marc Webb

Adjusted Score: 57888%
Critics Consensus: It fails to challenge the well-established conventions of its storyline, but Cemetery Junction benefits from the genuine warmth of its script, as well as its refusal to give in to cheap nostalgia.
Synopsis: Three bored young men living in the English suburbs strive to create identities for themselves in the stultifying atmosphere of... [More]


Breathe In (2013)

Adjusted Score: 58835%
Critics Consensus: Breathe In's plot never quite sparks the way it should, but it remains thoroughly watchable thanks to strong performances from Felicity Jones and Guy Pearce.

Directed By: Drake Doremus


Hysteria (2011)

Adjusted Score: 64602%
Critics Consensus: Hysteria has an amusing subject but its winking, vaguely sarcastic tone doesn't do the movie any favors.

Directed By: Tanya Wexler


Like Crazy (2011)

Adjusted Score: 77580%
Critics Consensus: It has the schmaltzy trappings of my romantic films, but Like Crazy allows its characters to express themselves beyond dialogue, crafting a true, intimate study.
Synopsis: While attending college in Los Angeles, Jacob (Anton Yelchin), an American, and Anna (Felicity Jones), who hails from London, fall... [More]
Directed By: Drake Doremus


The Aeronauts (2019)

Directed By: Tom Harper

Adjusted Score: 88796%
Critics Consensus: On the Basis of Sex is nowhere near as groundbreaking as its real-life subject, but her extraordinary life makes a solid case for itself as an inspirational, well-acted biopic.
Synopsis: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a struggling attorney and new mother who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for... [More]
Directed By: Mimi Leder


SoulBoy (2010)

Adjusted Score: 26964%

Adjusted Score: 80621%

Directed By: James Marsh
