2015 was filled with great acting performances from both festival films and mainstream releases so it was pretty difficult to narrow it down to what I considered to be the most entertaining out of the bunch. The crowd was filled with recognizable leading men and it was also nice to see so many strong roles for women, it looks like more and more are coming over the next several years. For now, let's take a look at my list of the most entertaining acting performances of 2015.
We're going to start off with my two favorite acting performances from all of the various film festivals I was able to attend. These two rose above the rest and really moved me in ways no one else could and their star power was unmistakably bright.
"Jamie Chung is just absolutely beautiful and fills the screen with so much personality."
"I really have to make a special mention of the two lead actors in the film, Mduduzi Mebaso and Lerato Mvelase."

My Favorite Performances of 2015
