Patty Hearst (1988): A 25-year-old Natasha Richardson is Patricia Hearst aka Tania aka Pearl in Paul Shrader’s visually striking adaptation of the newspaper heiress’s story of her kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974. Several then-unknown actors who played Hearst’s captors went on to have enduring careers, including Ving Rhames, Francis Fisher, and Dana Delany.

Note: This movie is not currently available on DVD (US format) but can be watched “instantly” at Netflix.
