As an adult, grown-up punk Natalie struggles to quiet the demons that still haunt her from her time in the wilderness.

Juliette Lewis is recognized as one of Hollywood's most talented and versatile actors of her generation. From when she first stunned audiences and critics alike with her Oscar-nominated performance as Danielle Bowden in Cape Fear, to date she has worked with some of the most revered directors in the industry, including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Lasse Hallström, Quentin Tarantino, Oliver Stone and Garry Marshall. Her powerful scenes with Robert De Niro in Scorsese’s Cape Fear captured the quiet complexities of adolescence and earned Lewis an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The auditorium scene with De Niro goes down in movie-making history as one of cinema's classic scenes. Whether lending dramatic authenticity or a natural comedic flair to her roles, Lewis graces the screen with remarkable range, as well as an original and captivating style. 
Lewis worked with Woody Allen in Husbands and Wives, playing a self-assured college coed with a penchant for older men and, particularly, her married professor. She quickly followed suit with a succession of starring roles in a variety of blockbusters and critically acclaimed projects including Kalifornia, Romeo Is Bleeding, What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Natural Born Killers, Oliver Stone's controversial media satire about two mass murderers who become legendary folk heroes.

Just remarkable.” 

Lewis was also seen in August: Osage County, based on the Pulitzer Prize and Tony-Award winning play by Tracy Letts alongside an ensemble cast that included Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor, and the indie film Kelly and Cal in which her performance was met by significant praise from film critics. Entertainment Weekly hailed Juliette’s performance as “a star in her prime,” while Variety added that she “shines in what feels like a tailor-made leading role.” The Los Angeles Times also raved that she “delivers one of her finest performances.”
