Directing

Mrs. Munck

1995

Writers – Ella Lefland (novel) and Diane Ladd (screenplay)

Stars – Diane Ladd, Bruce Dern,

Kelly Preston and Shelley Winters

Mrs. Munck had the honor of being selected by more than ten international film festivals including: Seattle, Washington, Toronto, Canada; and was chosen to co-open the Edinburgh, Scotland Film Festival. Ms. Ladd also received three best director awards including the Director’s ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT SPECIAL AWARD by the Florida Film Festival.

“EMOTIONAL WALLOP. An uproarious love story of bitter heartache and sweet revenge. ‘Harold and Maude’ meets ‘Misery’ in this unpredictable crossfire of love and rage. DIRECTING-WRITING DEBUT OF THREE-TIME OSCAR NOMINEE DIANE LADD. TERRIFIC DIALOGUE! STUNNING BREATHTAKING FILM. LADD IS GRISLY FUNNY IN THE TITLE ROLE, and the film is surprisingly effective as psychodrama, getting a special bite out of the casting of Lass’s own real ex-husband, BRUCE DERN, WHO STARS WITH A MAGNIFICENT PERFORMANCE in the part of the captive male. BOTH ACTORS SHOULD RECEIVE A NOMINATION PIERCING PERFORMANCES BY A SUPERB SUPPORTING CAST: SHELLEY WINTERS AND KELLY PRESTON… ‘MRS MUNCK’ in it’s own way, successfully mines some of the same terrain as ‘The Bridges of Madison County!’ Of the years (200 FILMS) AT THIS FESTIVAL ONE OF THIS REVIEWER’S TEN PERSONAL FAVORITES!”
