A WALK ON THE MOON
Academy Award-winning actress ANNA PAQUIN
portrays Alison Kantrowitz, a rebellious 60s teen who finds
her mother is making her own sexual discoveries. Paquin stunned
the world in 1993 with her moving film debut at the age of 9 in
Jane Campion's celebrated film "The Piano." She went
on to receive the 1995 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for the
role and to become one of cinema's most promising and complex
young talents, displaying a range of emotions and wealth of talent
well beyond her years.
Paquin most recently appeared in Steven Spielberg's epic historical
drama "Amistad," the acclaimed contemporary drama "Fly
Away Home" opposite Jeff Daniels and Franco Zefirelli's adaptation
of "Charlotte Brontes Jane Eyre." She will next be seen
in the motion picture version of the award-winning stage play
"Hurlyburly" directed by Anthony Drazan. Starring with
a cast that includes Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, Chaz Palminteri,
Garry Shandling, Meg Ryan and Robin Wright Penn, Paquin plays
the young pawn in a game of sexual intrigue. Ever displaying a
broad versatility, Paquin will follow that with Miramax's high
school romantic comedy "She's All That," a contemporary
Pygmalion tale about a popular high school boy's attempts to turn
a geeky introvert into a prom queen. She is currently filming
"All The Rage," playing a punk Lolita in an ensemble
drama about the effects of violence in contemporary society.
On television, Paquin recently starred opposite Alfre Woodard
as the Southern tomboy Frankie Adams in the USA Network's telefilm
of Carson McCuller's beloved 1946 novel "Member of the Wedding."
