CRADLE WILL ROCK
(Margherita Sarfatti) can currently be seen as Adele August in "Anywhere But Here," directed by Wayne Wang. Also starring Natalie Portman, the film is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Mona Simpson. Sarandon was most recently seen in HBO's "Earthly Possessions," opposite Stephen Dorff, based on the Anne Tyler novel and directed by James Lapine, and "Illuminata," an erotic farce directed by John Turturro. She recently completed a role in Stanley Tucci's "Joe Gould's Secret" and is one of the voices in "Rugrats in Paris," both scheduled for release in 2000.
At a breakneck pace, Sarandon continues to defy every convention bestowed upon actresses. By breaking the mold and bringing her own brand of sex appeal and intelligence to each and every role—from her fearless portrayal in "Bull Durham" (1988) to her Oscar nominated performances in "Thelma & Louise" (1991), "Lorenzo's Oil" (1992) and "The Client" (1994), and her Academy Award -winning and SAG Award- winning role as Sister Helen Prejean, a nun consoling a death-row inmate in "Dead Man Walking—Sarandon has redefined what it means to be a movie star.
Sarandon made her acting debut in the movie, "Joe." The following year she played a continuing role in the drama "A World Apart." Her early film credits include "The Great Waldo Pepper," "Lovin' Molly," "The Front Page," and in 1975, the cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." In 1978 she played Brooke Shields' mother in Louis Malle's controversial "Pretty Baby" and then received her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress in another Louis Malle film, "Atlantic City." Sarandon's other film credits include "King of the Gypsies," "The Hunger," "Sweet Hearts Dance," "Compromising Positions," "The January Man," "White Palace," "The Buddy System," "A Dry White Season," "The Witches of Eastwick," "Bob Roberts," "Light Sleeper," "Little Women," "Safe Passage," "Twilight" and "Stepmom."
On Broadway, Sarandon appeared in "An Evening with Richard Nixon," and was critically lauded for her performances off-Broadway in "A Coupla White Chicks Sittin' Around Talkin"' and "Extremities."
Sarandon currently lives in New York.
