Because so many of us grew up watching Winona Ryder's awesome run of movies in the late '80s and early '90s, it feels as though she's been overdue a comeback for a while. Thanks to her appearance in Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2016 campaign and her lead role in new Netflix supernatural series Stranger Things, the Winona revival finally seems to be happening – even if you haven't watched it yet, you've surely seen tweets or Facebook statuses praising the show’s gripping story, its clever references to classic Steven Spielberg movies, and Ryder's fierce performance as the distraught mother of a 12-year-old boy who has mysteriously gone missing. As it becomes the must-watch TV show of the summer, it feels like the perfect time to look back at some of the actress's most memorable movie roles, from Heathers to Mermaids to Little Women, which combine to make her one of the ultimate ‘90s icons.
