A decade in TV series and mostly forgettable films has been eclipsed by Christina Hendricks ongoing – and frequently scene-stealing – role as Joan in 'Mad Men' (2007-15). She brought sass and style to the role, becoming one of the show’s most iconic characters. Her key films around this time were as an ill-fated moll in Nicolas Winding Refn’s retro classic 'Drive' and as a teacher nearing breaking point in Tony Kaye’s underrated 'Detachment' (both 2011). She is excellent as the distracted mother in 'Ginger & Rosa' (2012), emanates despair and desire for a better life in fellow Mad Men actor John Slattery’s solid feature debut 'God’s Pocket' and is wasted in Ryan Gosling’s self-conscious study in cruelty 'Lost River' (both 2014). There have been cameos in 'Zoolander 2' and 'The Neon Demon', and an unwise appearance in 'Bad Santa 2' (all 2016).
