A Lady of Cinema

Julianne Moore President of the Venice International Jury 79
by Davide Carbone

Awarded in Venice, Cannes and Berlin, Julianne Moore enriches an extraordinary career with a new chapter.

A career that began, as it is often shown in film, by working her way up the ladder, alternating off-Broadway roles with waiting tables in mid-1980s New York, which is where Julianne Moore moved with her family from their hometown of Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Her Hollywood debut comes with a giant: Chris Columbus (Home Alone) cast her opposite Hugh Grant in Nine Months. From that moment on, it was success after success after success: Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, Joel Coen’s The Big Lebowski, and a role that put a lot of weight on her shoulders, that of Agent Clarice Starling in Hannibal by Ridley Scott – a role that had been filled by Jodie Foster in Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs ten years prior. Moore earned a Coppa Volpi for Far from Heaven in 2002 and an Oscar for Still Alice in 2014, a Silver Bear at Berlin and a Prix d’interprétation féminine at Cannes, confirming her as one of the greatest actresses of modern cinema.

Julianne Moore will be at Venice79 to preside the Venice Film Festival’s international jury, which also includes Mariano Cohn, Leonardo Di Costanzo, Audrey Diwan, Leila Hatami, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Rodrigo Sorogoyen.
