In 2014, she was a part of Tusk which was followed by Holidays (2016), Yoga Horsers (2016) which is still among her best works thus far, and then All These Small Moments (2018).
Apart from movies, Harley Quinn Smith has also had her time with TV shows having appeared in a number including Supergirl and Big Hero 6: The Series where she had a voice role for Jodie Fischer.
