Abstract:

Part 1. In the late 80s and early 90s, Mary Stuart Masterson chose unconventional big-screen roles ranging from a tomboy teen in John Hughes' Some Kind of Wonderful, to a headstrong Georgian in Fried Green Tomatoes, to an unstable dreamer in Benny and Joon.

Part 2. A daughter of two actors, Mary Stuart Masterson has continued to push her career in different directions. She showed up on Broadway in the musical Nine, and she's appeared in many television shows along the way. Over the past couple of years, Masterson has devoted most of her time to directing The Cake Eaters. The film takes place in a small town in upstate New York. Mary Stuart Masterson is taking her film to festivals all over the U.S. I sat down with Masterson at a film festival in Woodstock, New York, to talk about her career, her choices as an actress, and being a female filmmaker. I began by asking why she initially decided to become an actress.

Part 3. The Cake Eaters is Mary Stuart Masterson's film about a small town in upstate New York, and the relationships between its inhabitants. Masterson takes her time with the film, letting viewers settle into its slow pace. At the center of the film sit Georgia and Beagle. I asked Masterson how it felt for her to direct the actors, instead of taking direction on her own acting.

Part 4. Mary Stuart Masterson told me she sometimes feels like a jack of all trades, master of none, as she bounces from stage to film to the director's chair. Well, 51% film critic Lisa Phillips begs to differ. Here's her take on Masterson's directorial debut, The Cake Eaters.
