I totally agree.I wish she went back into acting she has so much talent! She's made some good/ bad films but that's normal in the film industry. Give her a chance she's human after all.I'm glad that she is directing films.I hope her next film will be a block
buster fingers crossed hey! I love her! :) Go girl!!


Thank God Farmiga was far too anally retentive looking for the part , but Madonna is the only gal the can play the part in my opinion lol
