    Hope everyone sees Love Field. Not only her best turn, but one of the best performances of the 90s.

    Love Field (1992) - some people write it off as a typical Oscar-bait but it's a performance hard to pull off. She's extraordinary.
    The Deep End of the Ocean (1999) - a magnetic performance, elevates the film.
    Where is Kyra? (2017) - dark and a little camp, not easy to watch but worth to check it out. One of her best in recent years.

    I like her in Love Field but her performance as Catwoman in Batman Returns is for me as difficult to perfect if not more - from a physical, emotional and historical point of view (the shadow of Eartha Kitt), and she should have double nominations that year at least

    Where is Kyra and French Exit are both essential yup.

    Will watch The First Lady for this. Even though a top 15 is already quite hard to compile.

    Loved her in Married to the mob. Also like her in Russian house.

    Made her best films from 88-93. Baker boys, Love field and The age of innocence were her peak. Should have won an Oscar during those years.

    I hope people don’t forget Hairspray. She was pitch perfect in that!

    The range

    "And there on top of his head were faces like she had seen only in a dream, almost too beautiful to be recognized as people at all:
    the most beautiful woman and the most beautiful man in the world, she the female version of him, and he the male version of her

    Big FYC for The Russia House. It's not the largest role in spite of second billing, but she's extraordinary in a literate, haunting spy tale that also features Sean Connery's best performance and a complete lack of any violence on screen.

    I'll also give an FYC to Love Field which really is a rich acting turn for her.....
