Annette Bening is "A Terrific Combination"
From theater to film was not a completely smooth transition for Bening, as she slowly found her way from TV commercials to TV movies and pilots, and the occasional film. But by 1990, when she appeared as the femme fatale Myra Langtry in Stephen Frears The Grifters, it was clear that she was a talent to be reckoned with. The New York Times’ Vincent Canby was not alone in being impressed when he noted that “Miss Bening has something of the angelic looks of Michele Pfeiffer and the comic style and low-down sexiness of Kathleen Turner. It is a terrific combination.” It was so terrific that Bening received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role.
