American New Wave 25: Zoe Kravitz

Her father can say that he has been in an Oscar-winning film called Precious, but I’d say Zoë Kravitz definitely has a leg up on her musician father when it comes to acting. Slowly building her career with bit, supporting parts in No Reservations, The Brave One and indie films Assassination of a High School President, Birds of America and The Greatest, this indiegrrl actress is looking towards a very bright future.

I remember her mother Lisa Bonet being notoriously slammed for her part in an Alan Parker film – I hope she’s vicariously claiming victory with her daughter’s ascension up the ranks.

2010 sees Kravitz beef up in the role departments. She began the year in Sundance preeming Twelve, showed up at Tribeca with Beware the Gonzo, got a sweet part in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story which is poised to appear at some major festival this fall, and she’ll go full circle by most likely showing up in Park City again, with a pivotal lead role in Victoria Mahoney’s Yelling to the Sky (see behind the scenes pic above).
