Garner has appeared in the films Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011), The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014), and had leading roles in the films Electrick Children (2012), We Are What We Are (2013), Grandma (2015), Tomato Red (2017), and The Assistant (2019).
Garner was born in the Riverdale neighborhood of The Bronx, New York. Her mother, Tami Gingold, a therapist, had a successful career as a comedian in her native Israel. Her father, Thomas Garner, is a painter and an art teacher, originally from Shaker Heights, Ohio. Garner is Jewish.
I started doing student films at Columbia grad school, and this one student filmmaker, his girlfriend was interning at an open casting call for Susan Shopmaker. Later on, she did the stage reading for Martha Marcy May Marlene, then she cast it, and that was my first movie.
In 2012, director David Chase invited her to play a small role which he wrote specifically for her in his movie Not Fade Away. Her first starring role was in the 2012 movie, Electrick Children. In 2013, she starred alongside Ashley Bell in the horror film The Last Exorcism Part II, and played the lead in the American remake of the Mexican horror film We Are What We Are.
Garner co-starred in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) as new character Marcy, a young stripper who crosses paths with another new character, Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). This marked the first time she acted against a green screen.
