After years of hiding her traumatic experience in giving adoption to the girl she had (Hortense), she appears in her life to learn about her roots, and to establish a relationship with her. Cynthia, after a panic attack, decides to give Hortense a chance, discovering to her astonishment that she had her black skin. During her brother’s birthday, Cynthia introduces her to the entire family, including her other daughter, uncovering all the secrets and lies that were nesting in her life.

Months later, she collected the Golden Globe for the best drama actress on a night when, because of her nerves, the brooch of her dress broke. At the end of January Brenda was an Oscar candidate for best actress-she lost to Frances McDormand. In March, she won the best actress with BAFTA.

In Little Voice she defended the role of Mari, a selfish mother, capable of exploiting the qualities as a singer of her daughter, and who spent the day alcoholic.

In 2000 he obtained one of his greatest commercial successes with The Garden of Joy, in which he played a widow who after the death of her husband resumed his life … planting marijuana, and distributing it among the villagers.

In the following years he offered variations of his most characteristic roles in films such as Funerarias S.A. or Sonny, debut in the performance of Nicolas Cage. An important part of the criticism objected to his histrionics.

In 2005 he revived the lost laurels with a BAFTA candidacy for Pride and Prejudice, in which he played Mrs. Bennet, a vulgar woman with no manners determined to marry her five daughters, even if it was at the expense of exposing the most refined of them, Jane and Lizzy.
