Ally Sheedy in High Art

She didn't really get much of a career bump out of that did she. It seemed like it was a big comeback for her at the time. She won all sorts of awards and then ...not much else. Why?

She acted nutty when collecting the awards.

Was it sleeping pill nutty R1, or nutty nutty?

[quote]Sheedy was admitted to Hazelden Foundation and in the 1990s was treated for a sleeping pill addiction, an experience on which she drew for her role as a drug-addicted photographer in High Art.

Maybe her addiction resurface and derailed the restart of her career.

At the Independent Spirit Awards She gave a 15 min acceptance speech, which was televised

Unfortunately she was cast in the role of Hedwig in the Off-Broadway production and while she worked her ass off, she was in way over her head. I would bet getting fired from that gig shook her confidence. She really is a fragile little thing.

Something about her really creeps me out like I wouldn't be surprised if she got convicted of some weird crime involving animal carcasses.

She recently outed her teenage daughter to red carpet interviewer.

Her mother is also a lesbian, R5 - high powered literary agent Charlotte Sheedy, who has been out for decades. I don't know how she "outed" her daughter, but it's likely nobody in the family sees being out as a bad thing.

Her daughter was her date to the event and she just blurted out to the interviewer that her daughter was gay and then quickly asked her kid if it was ok she'd said that. It was awkward.

is that awards speech online? I've always wanted to see that.

I love her as the crazy serial killer on "Psych."

Career bump? It was a weird indie film. Who saw it?!

Her old mainstream film going audience probably didn't even see this film, it's not as if she was in some major Oscar nominated film or an action blockbuster like "Avatar".

I personally never got her appeal and for some reason her old looking face, ever when she was young, and her thin lips, annoy me.

I think this relates to a super handsome guy I used to work with, many years ago, who'd go on and on about how "hot & sexy" she was. I never got it, I would never call Ally Sheedy hot. He seemed to be the only str8 guy in my department who thought she was hot or sexy.

Sheedy played a lesbian credibly. Better than those two facile bimbos in "The Kids Are Alright." She's hot even stick skinny. I'd do her.

I was really disappointed in The Kids Are All Right. Cholodenko managed to even make Frances McDormand sexy and Patty Clarkson's Greta is one of my favorite characters ever.

Yes, Greta is a very interesting film character...

The soundtrack to High Art is one of the best. Good plunge the boyfriend on a rainy day music.

Fucking love that film. High art indeed, an indie classic. Perhaps the best gay movie ever.

The men were super buff, love the one who went on to be in Revenge. Patty Clarkson is just the best.

The Kids are All Right is good, but not a patch on this. Was almost shocked they were from the same director, other than the theme... very different approaches. One is pure 90s indie, the other is more the typical dramedy of the 00s.

Ally avoids botox and plastic surgery and it shows.

The Revenge guy is good r15, but he's never been buff. I like the movie but not for any male hotties.

I met her at a film festival when High Art premeried. She was prettier in person and of course, very, very tiny. Rhada Mitchell was a bit of a bitch.

R18 what she did and you thought she is a bitch?

by Anonymousreply 1908/17/2013

Oh I just noticed this is another 2010 thread. Still, at least it's an interesting one and the fabulous Greta is worth a bump.

Ally should have had a larger career.
