THE MUSE

ANDIE MACDOWELL's career as an international star is a testimony to her ability to be seen in a wide variety of films, ranging from big-budget Hollywood pictures to intense offbeat independent features.

MacDowell first received widespread acclaim for her performance as a repressed young housewife in Steven Soderbergh's sex, lies, & videotape (winner of the Palme d-Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival). For her work in the film, MacDowell received the Los Angeles Film Critics Association-s Best Actress Award. She was also honored with an Independent Spirit Award, and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.

While MacDowell came to fame in dramatic roles, she also appeals to audiences because of her humor and likability. Those qualities were evident in her roles in Peter Weir's Green Card (for which she received a second Golden Globe Award nomination) and Harold Ramis' Groundhog Day (in which she starred with Bill Murray).

This image was further enhanced as MacDowell appeared in two consecutive films for Robert Altman: The Player and Short Cuts.

In 1994, she was the #1 female box-office draw worldwide thanks to her starring roles in Mike Newell-s romantic comedy smash Four Weddings and a Funeral (which earned her a third Golden Globe Award nomination) and the Western Bad Girls.

Refusing to be typecast, she next starred with John Turturro in Diane Keaton-s Unstrung Heroes, and with John Travolta and William Hurt in Nora Ephron's Michael. Reteaming with Harold Ramis, she starred opposite Michael Keaton in Multiplicity. In Wim Wenders' The End of Violence, she appeared with Bill Pullman. She then starred in Susanna Styron's Shadrach and Richard Wenk's Just the Ticket.

Confirming her international appeal, MacDowell received, in 1997, an honorary Cesar Award (the French equivalent of the Academy Award); and Germany's Goldene Kamera Award for career achievement).

MacDowell will next be seen in Town & Country with Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, and Goldie Hawn.
