True/False 2014: 'Actress' Review

Actress is a documentary about Brandy Burre, an actress whose claim to fame was a recurring role on The Wire. Since then, though, she abandoned her career to focus on being a mother. The film follows her as she tries to reignite that career, but it's about more than just that. Director Robert Greene examines gender roles, ageism and why none of us (not just women) can have it all. My review is up at Screen International.
