Actress Marsha Hunt, who now lives in Sherman Oaks, held a private screening with a few dozen of her closest friends to promote the new movie "Nebraska."
"I saw this movie and I was so taken by it," Hunt told the gathering of her friends at the private screening at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. "It leaves you with a feeling of hope, and today, it's hard to find a movie that does that."
The film is in black and white, too, and most of the movies that Hunt has been in (co-starring with the likes of John Wayne and Laurence Olivier) were also in black and white.
"Nebraska" is already considered a serious contender for the Academy Awards, particularly for Bruce Dern, who was at the screening and greeted Marsha with a big hug.
The movie is written by Bob Nelson and is directed by Alexander Payne. Her friend, the actress June Squibb, who’s been winning raves for her feisty mom performance as “Kate Grant” in the film as Dern's character's wife, is a strong best supporting actress contender.
"I came away feeling warmed, refreshed and somehow, more hopeful," Hunt says.
