Jessica Chastain exploded onto the scene in 2011 with starring roles in seven film releases; for her performance in The Help she received Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, and Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremonies.

For the former, she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress (Drama) and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. With the release of Mama and Zero Dark Thirty, Chastain became the first woman in 50 years to have the leading role in the top two movies at the box office. In Zero Dark Thirty, Chastain’s character, CIA agent “Maya,” wears the Ray-Ban RB3025 aviator from Luxottica

 

Though not nearly as favorably recognized by critics, any film that stars a living legend is worth the $13 admission price. The Guilt Trip, which hit theaters at the end of December, stars Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen as a mother and son who find themselves on an unexpected cross-country road trip. Rogen, who plays Andy, an inventor, begrudgingly invites his widowed mother (Streisand) on the road under the guise of shilling an environmentally-friendly cleaning fluid but also with the intention of reuniting her with a long-lost love. Of course antics ensue and REM Eyewear’s house brand collection, Indie, is along for the ride, thanks to Rogen sporting the brand’s Quinn style throughout the film.
