On Friday March 24, 2017, Netflix subscribers are in for a treat with the release of their newest original studio film “The Most Hated Woman in America” a biopic about the life of American activist Madalyn Murray O’Hair.
Cast in the role of Madalyn’s mother and confidant Lena Christina Mays is Best Actress Oscar® Nominee and Golden Globe® Winner Sally Kirkland (”Anna”, “EDTV”, “The Haunted”, “Roseanne”, “Archaeology of a Woman”).
This is first time two of Hollywood’s busiest Golden Globe® winning character actresses Sally Kirkland and Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”, “Treme”, “Frozen River”) have worked together and the results are spectacular. Netflix should immediately cast Kirkland and Leo in a remake of “Strangers: The Story of a Mother and Daughter.”
In career that has spanned nearly six decades on stage, screen, and television Sally Kirkland is no stranger to the red carpet or the spotlight. However, the lack of roles for women and especially women of a certain age, make roles in high profile projects incredibly rare. We can hope studios and networks will take notice and remember what an incredible talent Sally Kirkland is.
