Twenty-one years have passed since Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn last held center screen in a leading role in a movie.
The year was 2000, the film was the adaptation of the novel “Requiem for a Dream,” and Burstyn was Oscar nominated for the sixth time. She later graced “House of Cards” with a luminous portrayal as Claire Underwood’s mother and, on the big screen, was considered a possible Oscar contender last year for her striking work in “Pieces of a Woman.” But a leading role has eluded her. Until now.
