SHE'S THE BEST THING IN IT

Oscar-nominated writer/producer RON NYSWANER's first documentary feature is an examination of the actor's craft and the sacrifices demanded by a lifelong career. Veteran character actor and Tony Award winner, MARY LOUISE WILSON, age 79, teaches her first acting class to skeptical members of the YouTube generation, smashing their red carpet illusions and challenging them to bring emotional honesty into their acting. Features interviews with FRANCES MCDORMAND, MELISSA LEO, TYNE DALY, ESTELLE PARSONS, VALERIE HARPER, and playwright DOUG WRIGHT, discussing what it means to be a character actor, whether acting can be taught, what constitutes 'talent,' and whether the profession is harder for women.
