Actress

Watch Trailer Director: Robert Greene
Cast: Brandy Burre, Michael Tomlinson

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. Actress is both a present tense portrait of a dying relationship and an exploration of a complicated woman, performing the role of herself as she faces the desires that exist outside of her home.

“Robert Greene’s extraordinary collaboration with actress Brandy Burre is a playful, provocative examination of self-performance.” -Guy Lodge, Variety

“Combining artifice with vérité documentary style, [Greene] underscores the inextricability of real life and make-believe, of genuine behavior and self-conscious performance.” -Peter Keough, Boston Globe
