Robert Greene effectively blurs the lines between fact, fiction, persona, and personality in Actress, a documentary film about a woman/actress in crisis. Brandy Burre appeared on the series The Wire before taking a hiatus to start a suburban family with her partner, Tim. Now a mother of two, the middle-aged Burre plays out her crumbling domestic life, starring in a role as herself. Surprisingly opaque, Actress wanders through Sirkian melodrama and cinema vérité to question both thespian and real-life truths.
