That's a real shame because Amy Wright is as good as they get. Theater audiences already know this as she has been featured in numerous Broadway productions, including many by the acclaimed playwright Lanford Wilson.
Some of her best film roles were in small movies like Wise Blood and Inside Moves, which is probably why the mainstream public isn't aware of her talents. That's a pity, as these films need to be seen - especially in this day and age of break-out indie performances. If those two movies were to come out today, critics would be predicting Oscar nominations for Amy Wright.
Her talents go way beyond those two films mentioned, though, as she shines in all of her work. With her plain, earthy look and memorable offbeat characters, Amy Wright is today's pick for Not Very Famous...But Should Be.
