Adoro este filme, The Grifters (Stephen Frears, 1990). Em Portugal deram-lhe o título de "Anatomia do Golpe". Consumi-o inúmeras vezes porque houve uma altura que parecia estar em loop na programação do canal Hollywood. No meu zapping ia lá parar constantemente, e dali já não saía. O bónus chama-se John Cusack (giro), faz de filho dela. A propósito: não podíamos estar mais em desacordo com parte deste post do Mexia. Não sei que opinião tem a minha mãe sobre o Cusack (quite irrelevant for that matter), mas eu sempre gostei muito dele.
E agora a palavra à nossa amiga Wiki:
For the role of Lilly, Frears originally considered Cher but she became too expensive after the success of Moonstruck. Frears first contacted Anjelica Huston about playing Lilly in 1989 while she was filming Crimes and Misdemeanors, but after reading the script, she was unsure. Before she could make a decision, Frears called her and said that they were going in a different direction in the casting. Melanie Griffith was approached to play Lilly because he was interested in making a film "about how shocking it would be to have a mother who looked like your sister," but the actress was pregnant at the time and could not do it. A few months later, Frears contacted Huston again to see if she was still interested. He was reluctant to cast her because she looked like, "a lady" and decided to cheapen her look with a bleached blond wig and wearing "vulgar clothes".
Cher? Melanie Griffith? Those bimbos? Pliize. Anjelica rules.
