nobody movie_Each Winona Ryder film was rated from worst to best

Another ensemble cast film, The Ten, is a series of vignettes, two of which star Winona Ryder. Written by David Wain and Ken Marino, the comedy anthology features ten different stories, each inspired by one of the Bible’s Ten Commandments. Ryder stars in two of the episodes, the first, which also stars Adam Brody, is based on the first commandment and is titled Thou Shalt Worship No God Before Me. In the short story, a man falls out of a plane and gets stuck in the ground, becoming a celebrity in the process. As he basks in the splendor of idolatry, it costs him the love of his fiancee (Ryder).

Later in the film, in the seventh story, “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” Ryder’s character from the first entry returns, having dumped her boyfriend and is now married to a television host. But when she meets a mysterious ventriloquist dummy, she falls in love and leaves her husband for a shabby affair with the dummy. At times choppy, some of the stories in this anthology work and some don’t, making The Ten a hit-or-miss comedy. So your mileage may vary depending on your tastes, but Ryder’s stories are definitely highlights, especially if you’re a fan of the actress.
