Oscar-Worthy: 2012's 'It Woman' Rosemarie DeWitt
This has been a long year for the Weekend Warrior blog and we've done a ton of interviews but if we could just pick one actor or actress who really blew us away, we'd probably have to go with Rosemarie DeWitt, who began the year by running the gauntlet of film festivals of one third the cast of Lynn Shelton's Your Sister's Sister along with Emily Blunt and Mark Duplass. It would be the movie that has had the most impact on DeWitt as the cast won an award for Best Ensemble at the Gotham Awards and DeWitt received an Indie Spirit nomination a few days later.
In Promised Land , written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski and directed by Gus Van Sant, DeWitt plays a small town schoolteacher named Alice who gets pulled into the battle between Damon's corporate salesman and Krasinski's environmentalist as they try to convince the townspeople to vote their way.
ComingSoon.net attended the New York junket for Promised Land where we spent a little extra time speaking with DeWitt not only about the movie but also about some of the other things she's worked on in the past year and in the coming year.http://www.comingsoon.net/news/weekendwarriornews.php?id=98392
