10 Zoë Kravitz Films You Should Watch After ‘The Batman’

Kravitz daughter of actor Lisa Bonet and rock musician Lenny Kravitz, is celebrity royalty, she’s one of the most stunningly beautiful people on the planet, and she’s a talented actor.

In at least one instance Kravitz appears to have been hurt by discrimination; she was turned down for the role of Catwoman in 2012’s The Dark Knight Returns because she was “too urban”—ie, not white enough. (How can someone be too urban for Gotham City?!)

Here’s a list of the good, the interesting, and the why-on-earth-didn’t-she-get-more-screen time-in-that.

Yelling to the Sky (2011)

Director Victoria Mahoney’s semi-autobiographical debut is a painful story about abuse and violence, filmed with naturalist grit spotted with gaps that make the narrative feel unmoored in time.

Treading Water (2013)

Kravitz plays the manic pixie dream girl, whose purpose is to be available for romantic attachment and/or turmoil as the plot requires.

The Road Within (2014)

Gren Wells’ directorial debut is a coming-of-age story about three disabled teens who escape from an institution and go on a road trip in a stolen car.

Good Kill (2014)

One of the more interesting movies Kravitz has been in, though her role is fairly small. Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) is a drone pilot, whose job requires him to murder women and children halfway across the world in Yemen, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Kravitz has played a number of bit parts in big-budget action franchise extravaganzas; this is the best of those. She’s one of the escaped wives of Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), the authoritarian post-apocalyptic patriarch.
