She has earned widespread respect for challenging roles in movies like The End Of The Affair, The Hours and The Kids Are All Right. But she's also starred in plenty of blockbusters such as Boogie Night, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Hannibal, Non-Stop, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Parts 1 and 2.
