Mortimer starred in Daniel Barber’s first film, Harry Brown (2009), as police detective Alice Frampton. The plot follows a widowed veteran (Michael Caine), who takes the law into his own hands when teenage violence ruins his community. Mortimer chose the role because “It felt like unfamiliar territory for me which is always a challenge and interesting […] the script is very gripping and brilliantly written […] getting to work with Michael, and then just the character being in some ways both the opposite and the same as Michael’s character.” To prepare for the role, she spent time with a real female detective, and learned about police interrogation techniques. Upon release, the critic from USA Today thought her performance was “caring and savvy”, despite the film’s “senseless violence”. Betsy Sharkey of Los Angeles Times wrote of Mortimer’s performance: “Her clinical coolness plays well off of Caine’s controlled heat.”

Mortimer played an aspiring actress opposite Andy García in City Island (2009). Although the film’s reception was warm, her role in City Island was noted by two critics as “vague” and weak. She appeared as Rachel Solando in Martin Scorsese’s 2010 thriller Shutter Island. Several critics thought Shutter Island was unexciting, and that Mortimer and her fellow actors were not utilized to their full potential. The film found moderate success at the box office, grossing $294 million from a budget of $80 million. She portrayed American educator Leonie Gilmour in the biographical drama Leonie (2010). Of her performance, The Hollywood Reporter opined that it was a “superb portrayal”, which showcased her acting range.

In 2011, she had a role in Our Idiot Brother as Liz, the sister of Paul Rudd’s titular character. In that same year, Mortimer appeared in Scorsese’s Hugo, an adaptation of Brian Selznick’s book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Hugo won five Academy Awards from eleven nominations but was a box office disappointment. Also in 2011, she started work with screenwriter and producer Aaron Sorkin, playing Mackenzie McHale in HBO’s The Newsroom. Although the first season of the series gained a mixed reception, the later seasons fared better. Several critics praised Mortimer’s acting abilities in season one, but they took issue with her character’s writing. In January 2013, it was announced that Mortimer would be co-creating and starring in the comedy series Doll & Em for Sky Living, along with her longtime friend, actress, and comedian Dolly Wells.

Next, Mortimer starred in the drama The Sense of an Ending (2017), based on the novel of the same title by Julian Barnes. Playing the mother Sarah Ford, Mortimer garnered praise for her lively performance, while one critic thought she was miscast. In that same year, she portrayed the pregnant Jinny in The Party; the film premiered at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and was favorably received. Mortimer co-starred with Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy in the drama The Bookshop. Adapted from the 1978 novel of the same title by Penelope Fitzgerald, Mortimer played Florence Green, who opens a bookshop despite local opposition. Writing for Chicago Reader, Andrea Gronvall noted, “The ever-winsome Emily Mortimer glows as a struggling widow”, and Variety magazine opined that it was “A fine, sensitive leading turn” for the actor. The Bookshop grossed $12 million worldwide.

In the small-scale feature, Write When You Get Work (2018), Mortimer played a member of the elite class. A family drama, about a man with Alzheimer’s, Head Full of Honey (2018), was Mortimer’s next release. She played the wife of Matt Dillon’s character. The Los Angeles Times gave the film a negative review, and thought Mortimer and the cast were “all over the place”. She then joined the cast of Mary Poppins Returns, a 2018 musical fantasy directed by Rob Marshall. It is loosely based on the book series Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers. The film was a box office hit, and Christopher Orr of The Atlantic magazine praised Mortimer’s “charming” performance.

Mortimer returned to the screen in 2019 with Good Posture. It co-stars Grace Van Patten as Lilian, a young woman who moves in with her father’s friend, a reclusive novelist called Julia Price (Mortimer). Of her character, she said, “I wish I had just one percent of Julia’s frostiness in my own life. I really enjoyed being that person, feeling what it’s like to be intimidating.” The film was made by Mortimer’s friend, Dolly Wells, in her directorial debut. The actor’s performance earned praise, but several critics were disappointed with her amount of screen time. Next, she appeared in Greg Kinnear’s comedy Phil; it was negatively received by critics. In the horror film Mary, Mortimer starred opposite Gary Oldman. The film is about a family in isolated waters and the ship they bought which has terrifying secrets. Mary was panned by critics, and the Los Angeles Times thought the actor’s talents were wasted.
