Mary Beth Hurt -Underrated performance.


She should of won an oscar.

Mary Beth Hurt, despite having a long career, has been very under the radar for some reason. She was great here, and I think she has never looked prettier. Great acting throughout, I think this and her role in Interiors (another role that was amazingly not recognized, I think she had the most difficult role in that picture and she played it really well) are her best.

She looked beyond pretty... nearly angelic. Otherwise, though out most of her career , never quite the same.

Agree. Watching it for the first time in many years it's her performance that really stands out. But I have to say Interiors is a bottom quartile Woody Allen movie.
