In Whatever Works, out on DVD this week, Patricia Clarkson plays Marietta, mother to the 21-year-old Melodie (Evan Rachel Wood) who marries the curmudgeonly Boris (Larry David). Clarkson's character comes to New York intent on ending her daughter's marriage ... and then makes a radical lifestyle change.
Whatever Works is Clarkson's second appearance in a Woody Allen movie, having played an unhappily married housewife in 2008's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. On the next Secret's Out, Clarkson talks with Leonard Maltin about how she got started working with Allen.
Tune in for the Secret's Out premiere on Friday, December 11, at 6:30 PM ET/ 3:30 PM PT. Or catch one of its encore showings. Posted 12.11.09 by reelz
