Searching for Debra Winger

"OK"

Searching for Debra Winger Review


It's either sad or interesting or -- something -- when the only man in a movie is Roger Ebert. Rosanna Arquette, tired of hearing that old aphorism that there are no good parts for women in Hollywood, takes up a video camera and records interviews with some three dozen actresses at various ages. (The title invokes Debra Winger's recent retirement and reclusiveness -- though since this film she returned to the cinema.)

Many of the comments are incisive -- Holly Hunter, Whoopi Goldberg, and a surprisinly lucid Martha Plimpton -- but just as many are repetitive, whining, and obsequious: Remember you're dealing with some of the most famous, wealthiest people in the country and you'll start rolling your eyes when Sharon Stone starts droning about her "womanness."
