“A train robbery is where you take a train to your destination, make your move, and take a train back, right?”


Laura Dern in Enlightened, part one

It would be remiss of me to mention Dern’s excellent television work in this year’s Twin Peaks and Big Little Lies without acknowledging her funniest, most exasperating and deeply lovable creation on the small screen: Amy Jellicoe in HBO’s Enlightened (2011-2013). This show was a real labor of love for Dern, who created it with writer/co-star Mike White, co-produced it, and deservedly won a Golden Globe award and Emmy nomination for her performance; many fans still haven’t recovered from HBO’s unfair cancellation (due to weak ratings) after two remarkable seasons. Here she is pictured with White, Luke Wilson and her real-life and onscreen mother, Diane Ladd.
