“Few screen actors have moved as seamlessly and sublimely between comedy and drama as Holly Hunter. Although taken for granted in recent years, Hunter’s masterfully adaptable talent seems to exist on an entirely different plane than that of her peers and has carried many a precarious movie over the course of her more than three-decade career. Hunter has proven to be an ever-renewable generator of indelible and wondrously specific character creations, each of them capable of provoking unadulterated delight and unanticipated catharsis in viewers. In a profession where any actor would be lucky enough to launch a single character even halfway as beloved as Raising Arizona’s Edwina or Broadcast News’ Jane Craig or The Piano’s Ada McGrath or The Incredibles’ Elastigirl, Hunter has distinguished herself as a supremely worthy interpreter of women, both human and superhuman.”

Looking for the Real: Matthew Eng talks to Holly Hunter about her gem of a performance in The Big Sick and the roles she really wants to play.
