Anna (1987)

Sally Kirkland as "Anna"

Starry-eyed Czech immigrant Krystyna (Paulina Porizkova) journeys to New York City to meet her hero, Anna (Sally Kirkland), a once-famous actress from her homeland. Having passed her Hollywood prime, Anna now struggles to find even bit parts in movies, and so instead begins mentoring young Krystyna, encouraging her in her own pursuit of stardom. As one star's career fades and another's begins to rise, the two women band together to overcome inequities in the unforgiving world of show business.
