It’s an extraordinary movie and extraordinary performances from both of them. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to be an actor. I remember sitting in my house and coming into the movie halfway and there was Jessica sitting in her car all beat up. And I will never forget the way she looked at the house where her mother was. And I knew instantly that she was going to die under the weight of going back into that house and that she was absolutely compelled to go in. And I thought, How do you do all of that with no dialogue?

Sarah Paulson is an Emmy-Award nominated actor known for HBO’s “Game Change” and the film “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”
