Bugsy (1991): Tough and Vulnerable
In Bugsy, when it came to capturing the tough glamour of classic Hollywood, Annette Being’s portrayal of Virginia Hill, the sultry girlfriend of the film’s titled gangster, was stellar. The Washington Post’s, Hal Hinson picked up on the depth of her performance, noting that Bening’s Hill “reveals both the uncompromising toughness of a woman who's used sex to get what's she's wanted out of life, and the vulnerability that comes from knowing you can go around the track only so many times before the mileage starts to show.” The Golden Globes agreed nominating Ms. Bening for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture [Drama].
