In the latest episode of the Breakout Role Podcast, Luke and Jessica take a different approach, looking at a trio of early films from the early years of Amy Adams’ career. From the dispiriting, reductive and embarrassing Cruel Intentions 2 and the grind of a Hollywood machine that almost led Adams to quit acting altogether, to the freedom of indie drama Junebug, Oscar success but overall underappreciation, to finally launching into the mainstream (and reviving Disney?) in Enchanted, Adams’ strive to breakout is a fascinating journey through the boxes actresses get forced into by Hollywood and the drive it takes to work ones way out of them.
Listen in to #AmyAdamsBreakout as we go through these three very different films and explore the career of one of Hollywood’s leading lights.
