It’s been exactly 10 years since Jessica Chastain got her big Hollywood break with The Help and The Tree of Life, and she’s going stronger than ever a decade later. The Oscar-nominated actress stars in several promising projects this year, and here are three that you shouldn’t miss for the world.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye

Chastain entered the Oscar conversation with her project The Eyes of Tammy Faye, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall. This exciting biopic chronicles the rise and fall of controversial televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker.

The Forgiven

10 years after starring together in Coriolanus, Jessica Chastain and Ralph Fiennes are set to reunite in The Forgiven. The John Michael McDonagh-directed film takes place over a weekend in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco and explores the impact that a random accident left on the locals and western visitors attending a house party in a grand villa.

Scenes from a Marriage

We’re used to seeing Chastain on the big screen, but she was amazing in her first major TV role in Scenes from a Marriage. Based on Ingmar Bergman’s Swedish mini-series, this project saw Chastain joining forces with her A Most Violent Year co-star Oscar Isaac.
