Shadow Play (1986)

April 17th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1980's, Oregon director, Oregon film, Oregon film new definition, Oregon film old definition, Oregon location (primary), Oregon producer, Oregon writer

In Susan Shadburne’s Shadow Play, a blocked writer seeks sanctuary in an unlikely place – the house where years before she had become a bride and a widow on the same night. Rarely are the creative travails of being a artist depicted so accurately — at one point Dee Wallace Stone is found unconscious on the floor next to her typewriter, covered with blood —  so this is the film to see if you want to be talked out of the sudden impulse you had this morning to write the Great American Novel.

Cloris Leachman appears as the clueless mother-in-law, who just wants to help.

The credits of Shadow Play read like a Who’s Who of Portland film.
