Twelve years ago today A Thousand Acres premiered.
I love how incongruous this photoshoot was with the material it was promoting. Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange look like they're reliving their childhoods and they're just happy-go-lucky. Not so onscreen. They're all kinds of miserable in their tragic King Learish farm wives movie.
Lange is up for an EMMY tomorrow night for Grey Gardens [editors note: I'll be live-blogging. Be here!]. La Pfeiffer is also in comeback mode after a well deserved hit Hairspray and a probable Oscar campaign for Chéri. That said, "Comeback" is such a weird and misleading concept. It feels like these 80s superstars have always been with us. There's an ineffably endearing quality to that kind of longevity, don't you think?
