Bentonville: Fearless stuntwomen,retiring post-masters,and troubled schoolgirls

Part 2 of 3

Playing in traffic...(Captain America: Winter Soldier) one of the daily jobs of Hollywood stuntwomen

Aside from the very first opening night activities at Bentonville,the first film I attended was a work-in-progress doc calledStuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story.The director April Wright is still working on the final cut so there's still time to get more focused (it was easy to imagine this as an even fuller miniseries as it's trying to covering a lot!) but whatever it'll be in its final form will be entertaining...

Interview: Karen Allen on 'Year by the Sea' and How She Grew Up Being Like Marion Ravenwood

ByJose Solís.

Karen Allen stars in "Year by the Sea,"opening next Friday

InYear By the Sea,Karen Allen plays author Joan Anderson,whose memoirs served as the inspiration for a film that asks what happens to women after their kids leave.For Anderson the answer came in a trip of rediscovery that took her from her home,to a small town in Cape Cod where she learned how to feel truly alive again.Allen's portrayal of Joan reveals new layers in her work,she has always been compulsively watchable onscreen,but as the quiet Anderson she is absolutely luminous.Watching her in scenes opposite Yannick Bisson who plays the sexy fisherman Joan flirts with,she shows us that sensuality should not be relegated to 20-something,scantily clad female characters,and in scenes where Joan spends time with her friends,we crave for more fiction where women of a certain age get to be leads,not supporting characters.

I spoke to Allen about playing Anderson,how the book helped her develop the character,and what are some of her favorite scenes inRaiders of the Lost Ark.Read the interview after the jump...
