stage mom

actress barbara hershey is having a new heyday thanks to her role as a pushy mom of a star ballerina in 'black swan.' this type of person has been portrayed many times, on film and in the tabloids. someone's got to take the kid to tap class.

well, there's those that do more than drive the car. whatever the motive, it is a sticky situation. the spectacular anna magnani played that role beautifully in Bellissima (1951) by Visconti. the unfortunate circumstances which seem to follow anna, no matter what the role, will tug and tear at your heart.
