Biography

Daryl Hannah (born 3.12.1960)
Daryl Hannah is an American actress. She rose to fame in the 1980s, with roles in Blade Runner and Splash.

Childhood: Daryl Hannah was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Susan Wexler and Don Hannah. Her father was the owner of a barge and tugboat company. Shortly after she was born, Daryl Hannah's parents divorced. Her mother married Jerrold Wexler, whose brother Haskell was a well-known cinematographer. She has a brother, Don Hannah, a sister, Page Hannah and a half-sister, Tanya Wexler.

Daryl Hannah attended Francis W. Parker School, where she played soccer on the boys' team and was diagnosed as being 'borderline autistic'. She later attended the Latin School of Chicago and the University of Southern California.

Acting Career: Daryl Hannah's debut film appearance came in 1978 when she had a brief role in The Fury, directed by Brian De Palma. After turning down the role of Emmeline Lestrange in The Blue Lagoon, which eventually went to Brooke Shields, Daryl Hannah took her first serious film role in 1982, when she appeared in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. The cult classic sci-fi thriller also starred Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer. Later that year, Hannah was cast in Summer Lovers. The film starred Peter Gallagher and became a seasonal hit.

In 1984, Daryl Hannah landed her next big role, when she was cast in Splash. Starring Tom Hanks and John Candy, the film was a huge success and helped to propel Daryl Hannah's profile into Hollywood stardom.

The remainder of the 1980s remained a successful period for Daryl Hannah. In 1986, Hannah was cast in Wall Street, which starred Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen. Although the performances from the two male leads were highly regarded, Daryl Hannah's performance was widely panned and she earned herself a derogatory 'Razzie' award.

The following year, Daryl Hannah starred opposite Steve Martin in Roxanne, the comedy film version of Cyrano De Bergerac. The film was a hit and the respected film critic Roger Ebert wrote in praise of her performance.

In 1989, Daryl Hannah was part of an all-star cast that performed in the film Steel Magnolias. Other members of the cast included Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts and Shirley MacLaine.

After the 1980s, there was something of a break in Daryl Hannah's career, though she worked with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men.

Daryl Hannah's reputation entered a renaissance with the release of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Volume 1 and Kill Bill Volume 2, in which she played Elle Driver, a one-eyed assassin. The films also starred Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and David Carradine. These two films were followed by an appearance in Northfork, with James Woods and Nick Nolte. Hannah then featured in Dancing at The Blue Iguana, by Michael Radford, the director of Il Postino. Along with her performances in Casa de los Babys and Silver City, Daryl Hannah's career has seen a resurgence since her work with Tarantino. She also appeared as the love interest in Robbie Williams' music video for his song 'Feel'.

Daryl Hannah has also tried her hand working on the other side of the camera. She wrote, produced and directed The Last Supper, which won an accolade at the Berlin Film Festival. She also worked as director and producer on the Channel 4 documentary Strip Notes.

Personal Life: Daryl Hannah runs a weekly video blog entitled 'DHLoveLife', which focuses on sustainable solutions. She also acted as a judge of treehugger.com's 'Convenient Truth' series. She has worked with the Sea Shepherd Conservation group as part of their Operation Musashi, a campaign against whaling. In 2006, she was arrested and jailed for some time for her involvement in a protest against the destruction of an urban farm in Los Angeles. In 2009, she was arrested again - this time for protesting against mountaintop removal in West Virginia.

In the past, Daryl Hannah has had relationships with a number of high profile men, including the singer Jackson Browne, Val Kilmer and John F Kennedy Jr.

A Walk To Remember Review


Very Good
A Walk to Remember can and will be known best as "The Mandy Moore Project," the first feature where the popular teen singer stars on the big screen. She is the focal point of the marketing, the reason that most kids will see the movie, and the one player to be under the microscope. Luckily for Moore, and the film, her flaws are few, as she slides easily into one of the more interesting teen roles in recent adolescent films, as the originality of her character, her well-metered performance, and director Adam Shankman's lively delivery lift this movie above most of its counterparts.

The film may look like a relative to the Freddie Prinze Jr. vehicle She's All That (1999), but it's more like a cousin to Robert Mulligan's The Man in the Moon (1991). The story begins predictably enough: Landon (Shane West), a young teen sowing his oats through his high school years, is forced to take on charity work after orchestrating a stupid stunt that nearly paralyzes a kid. While mopping up hallways and tutoring youngsters, he comes across Jamie Sullivan (Moore), a level-headed duckling (not so ugly), with a good heart and religion at her core. If this were Prinze pap, Landon would spruce her up and show the world what it's been missing. Instead, in this Karen Janszen adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel, Jamie stays true to herself, and the shy girl has a life-changing effect on the guy.

Dancing At The Blue Iguana Review


OK
I'm jaded enough as a film critic to be unsurprised when I see a movie about five strippers, all leading melodramatic and tragic lives.

But when those five strippers are all reasonably B-level or former A-level movie stars, even my ears start to perk up. Even more amazing -- they're all naked.

Silver City Review


OK
What are they using on the moviemaking plantation this election year to have produced such a bumper crop of Democrat-leaning political films? The fertile harvest may have something to do with outright fear of a Bush win in November. Or, determination to clarify the issues for swing voters still formulating their judgments.

Now, after Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, Robert Greenwald's Uncovered: The War on Iraq, France's The World According to Bush, the upcoming Bush's Brain, and many more, filmmaker John Sayles adds his satiric shovelful with Silver City, a (fictional) feature film which explores the ramifications of a political system that lends itself to corrupt and unseemly influences.

Continue reading: Silver City Review

Wall Street Review


Excellent
Since the initial release of Wall Street, Oliver Stone's giant-sized 1987 fable, it's been said a million times: Greed Is Good. With those three words, Michael Douglas, as uber-corporate raider Gordon Gekko, defined the tone of not just a single movie but perhaps of an entire decade (even though that's a paraphrase of his actual quote).

The phrase, now famous via Douglas's Oscar-winning performance, was initially uttered by Ivan Boesky, the 1980s business biggie who thrived on doing whatever it took to become rich, and paid the price as a result. Director/co-writer Stone, with Douglas at the epicenter, erects an overdone behemoth of a movie that, like Boesky himself, is an ageless -- and, at times, clichéd -- cautionary tale.
