Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO's The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. When she decides to reclaim her life as an actor, the domestic world she's carefully created crumbles around her. Using elements of melodrama and cinema verité, ACTRESS is both a present tense portrait of a dying relationship and an exploration of a complicated woman, performing the role of herself, in a complex-yet-familiar story. It's a film about starring in the movie of your life. This is what happens when we break the rules.

Production and Technical Credits
March 24th, 2015
There are three $100 million theatrical hits arriving on the home market this week, which is amazing. However, that's really all that's coming out this week. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the biggest of these three hits, but it wasn't the best. The best is Into the Woods and given the lack of competition, the DVD or Blu-ray is the Pick of the Week.
November 7th, 2014
There are a ton of limited releases coming out this week, including The Theory of Everything
, which many people think will be an Awards Season contender. There are also a couple of foreign-language films worth checking out, Why Don't You Play in Hell
and The Way He Looks
. And finally, there are a trio of documentaries, Actress
, Death Metal Angola
, and National Gallery
. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of films earning mixed or weaker reviews, so hopefully the good films don't get squeezed out.
