Joan_Allen’s Biography

Joan Allen was born on August 20, 1956 in Rochelle, Illinois, at whose university – The Eastern Illinois University – she met John Malkovich, who invited her to go to Chicago to join the Steppenwolf Theater Company, with which Joan premiered And a Nightingale. The success of the public allowed him to access some productions directed by Wallace Shawn. In 1985, the year she debuted on television with the Evergreen series, Joan participated in The Marriage of Bette and Bo. Francis Ford Coppola in Peggy Sue Married (1986) gave him his first film opportunity.

Satisfied with the work of the actress, Coppola entrusted the role of Vera Tucker in Tucker: a man and his dream (1988), a film with which he was confined for years to the stereotype of the good wife, capable of sustaining the reins of the family. Jeff Bridges played her husband. In the middle of that year, Joan married Peter Friedman.

By then Joan was already a figure in the Broadway scene. He had won the Tony Award with Burn This (1987), opting the following year for the award for The Heide Chronicles, where he defended a true role in the antipodes of his cinematographic image: Heidi Holland.

For a few years he participated briefly in films such as Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993) and Amor loco (1994). In 1995, Oliver Stone gave her an opportunity to shine in Nixon, in which Joan characterized Pat Nixon as a manipulative, cold and distant woman who had her husband under her orders. Joan received a candidacy for the Awards of the Actors Guild and the Oscar for best supporting actress.

The following year she repeated for her portrayal of Elizabeth Proctor, a pregnant woman who defends her husband’s honor by involuntarily condemning him to death, in the film The Crucible, a film adaptation of The Witches of Salem, a play by Arthur Miller against McCarthyism and that contained a buried discourse on the importance of telling the truth.

In 1997 she gained her first leading role in The Ice Storm, where she became the skin of Elena Hood, a dissatisfied woman of an unfaithful husband (Ben: Kevin Kline), children (Paul and Wendy: Tobey Maguire and Christina Ricci) who do not pay any attention to her, kleptomaniac and who is incapable of taking revenge for her betrayal, however much she decides to end the conjugal relationship. Joan completed the year with an intervention in Cara a Cara.

In 1998 she returned to Tobey Maguire in Pleasantville, where she again defended the role of an applied housewife named Betty Parker, whose children (David and Jennifer: Maguire and Reese Witherspoon) take her out of her total ignorance about the pleasures of sex -including masturbation- and that dares to subvert the order mccarthysta and rigid of the community to initiate a romance with Mr. Johnson Jeff Daniels. Several associations of critics awarded her for her work, but for very few votes she did not manage to appear among the Oscar candidates.

By transgressing her usual role, Joan began to access other types of roles, such as the one she represented in The Contender, where she re-measured her faces with Jeff Bridges and Christian Slater. Senator Laine Hanson was a special promotion occasion for Joan, since her character was an independent politician, judged by her allegedly amoral past and by having changed ranks in defending the right to abortion, but who had also made mistakes in her life how to betray her best friend with her husband. Finally Laine Hanson defeated her opponents and took over as vice president of the country. Joan won an Oscar nomination for best actress.

Since then, Joan has become a luxury high school in commercial films such as The Myth of Bourne, where she played the role of CIA member and protagonist of minority films such as El dia de Noa, Yes and Beyond Hate. < / p>

Joan has Bonneville and Good Sharma pending release, as well as the filming of Purshers Needed -produced by herself-, where she has Brenda Blethyn and Maggie Smith as partners.
