Elisabeth Moss

Since AMC’s Mad Men came to a satisfying conclusion, actress Elisabeth Moss has continued to work with very promising and very talented directors. She was most recently seen in Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, an abrasive and dense piece of filmmaking, and before that she collaborated twice with writer/director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up PhillipQueen of the Earth). Next, Moss will appear in Ruben Östlund‘s The Square. It’s the director’s follow-up to the fantastic Force Majeure, one of the best films of 2014 that was snubbed by the Academy Awards.
