This article is from the Winona Ryder FAQ, by C. Scott Duprey email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Following are brief synopses of the films Winona has appeared in.
They are not reviews, and I will not get into the artistic merit of
each film. I didn't want to just list titles, though, because
sometimes you're racking your brain trying to come up with title of
the film she was in where she was high school valedictorian. Someone
might tell you "Reality Bites" when you were actually thinking of
"1969". I've also included the names of some of Winona's co-stars,
the year of release, and some other pertinent info.
