Wood was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, a SAG Award and a Critic's Choice

Paltrow and Alec Baldwin, the film follows the memories of a man's colorful childhood
with his bipolar and self-centered mother. She was also recently seen in David
Jacobson's Down in the Valley opposite Edward Norton, David Morse and Rory Culkin.
Set in the present-day San Fernando Valley, the film revolves around a delusional man

rebellious young woman.
Wood will next be seen in Vadim Perelman's In Bloom opposite Uma Thurman and in
