JOSHUA

VERA FARMIGA was most recently seen opposite Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's Oscar®-winning police drama, THE DEPARTED as a police psychiatrist torn between two men, and subsequently co-starred with Jude Law in Anthony Minghella's BREAKING & ENTERING for the Weinstein Company, playing a Romanian prostitute in a complicated relationship with Law's character.

Currently, Vera is in Budapest filming Miramax's Holocaust drama THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS, directed by Mark Herman. Farmiga plays a woman whose family is relocated from Berlin to a desolate area near a concentration camp, due to her husband's work for the SS. Her horrified realization of the camp's true purpose parallels her young son's relationship with a boy on the other side of the wire fence, who wears a uniform of "striped pajamas.

Farmiga will soon be seen in the love story NEVER FOREVER for director Gina Kim, which was produced by Steven Shainberg and Andrew Fierberg and co-stars Jung-woo Ha and David Lee McInnis. Like JOSHUA, the film had its world premiere in the dramatic competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

Also to be released this year is first-time director Carlos Brooks' QUID PRO QUO for Magnolia and HD Net. Vera plays a woman who guides a wheelchair-bound NPR reporter played by Nick Stahl on a journey into a subculture of "pretenders,” able-bodied people who go to great lengths to live as though physically disabled.

Farmiga won the Best Actress award from the Los Angeles Film Critics' Association for her performance in the independent film DOWN TO THE BONE, about a working-class mother trapped by drug addiction. She also won Best Actress awards from the Sundance Film Festival and the Marrakech Film Festival, and received an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

She will soon be seen in the post-World War II drama IN TRANZIT, in which she stars opposite John Malkovitch and Thomas Krestchmann. Other film credits include Wayne Kramer's RUNNING SCARED, Jonathan Demme's THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, DUMMY opposite Adrien Brody and FIFTEEN MINUTES with Robert DeNiro and Edward Burns.
