While we are waiting for The Umbrella Academy Season 3 to drop in June, why not watch Elliot Page movies until then? The actor has been headlining the news both for his gender transition announcement in 2020 and his role in one of Netflix’s most successful shows, The Umbrella Academy. We thought it would be fun to look at the actor’s filmography and rate his movies from best to worst.
In The Umbrella Academy, Elliot Page plays Vanya, aka Number Seven. In the last month, it was announced that Page will be returning in the 3rd season as Viktor in light of Page’s gender transition. Well, we are already excited and ready for the new season of the show which will be released on June 22 on Netflix. Until then, we still have some time to go over every Elliot Page movie ever made. Let’s make things easier for our readers though, and look at the 8 best Elliot Page movies.
With an incredible cast including Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, J. K. Simmons, Jason Bateman, Allison Janney, and Elliot Page as Juno, this movie is definitely going to warm your heart. It is a comedy-drama about a teenager who gets pregnant at the age of 16 and who has to decide what she is going to do with the baby. At first, she considers abortion and then decides to give the baby for adoption. Yet, things are not as easier as it looks, Juno has to deal with many issues regarding the pregnancy, the adoption, and the father of the child.
With a stellar cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Elliot Page, Inception is a mind-bending sci-fi. DiCaprio plays an unconventional thief who steals information from people by infiltrating their subconscious. He has to go on a difficult journey to have his criminal history erased. Elliot Page plays Ariadne, a young architect recruited by DiCaprio’s character.
3. Hard Candy
Hard Candy is a psychological thriller involving a 14-year-old girl, Hayley, played by Elliot Page. The movie starts out with the teenager and a 32-year-old man’s meeting after they engaged in a flirtatious online chat. They meet at a coffeehouse and we see the man trying to take Hayley to his house and they actually go. This is where things get scary as the viewer is afraid that something is going to happen to Hayley but that’s not how the events turn out. We figure out that it was Hayley who wanted to trap the man because she suspects that he is a sexual predator.
Elliot Page plays the titular character Tallulah, who after being dumped by her boyfriend, tries to come up with a plan to get back with him. Tallulah encounters an irresponsible mother who doesn’t really take care of her child so Tallulah kidnaps the child. She then takes the child to her ex-boyfriend’s mother saying that the child is her grandchild.
5. Whip It
Directed by Drew Berrymore, Whip It is a sports drama that has Page as the lead. Page plays Bliss, a small-town teenager who gets tired of her mother trying to make her win beauty pageants. Bliss goes on to find her own interest, in roller derby, after she encounters a match between roller derby teams. However, Bliss doesn’t want her family to know she is doing roller derby and things go sour when they find out.
6. My Days of Mercy
One of the least popular Elliot Page movies, My Days of Mercy is a romantic drama that follows Lucy (Page) who fights against the anti-death penalty as her father is on death row for killing her mother. During one of these protests, Lucy meets with Mercy (Kate Mara) who is a lawyer and whose father is a police officer. Although the two have ideological differences, they fall in love and start a romance.
Although Super is not one of those films where Elliot Page is the lead, Page is still an important side character in it. The movie is about a cook, whose wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, deciding to become a superhero without any abilities or powers to do so. It’s a black comedy superhero film and Page plays Libby/Boltie.
Flatliners is our least favorite movie on our list of best Elliot Page movies. It is a remake of the original Flatliners (1990) movie but it falls short in everything the original did great. It is about a few medical students who wonder about what it is like in the afterlife. They voluntarily embark on an experience where they stop their hearts for short periods in order to see what is on the other side. However, their actions turn out to have unintended horrifying consequences.
