As one of only two major female characters in the testosterone fest Inglourious Basterds, Laurent gives an intense performance as a young French woman hiding her Jewish roots. While Brad Pitt and the boys provide the laughs and gore, Laurent is left with a lot of the heavy lifting. Her expressive face says it all; particularly in the scene where she realizes she just met the man who slaughtered her family.
