Famed director Woody
Allen once said of her, "In real life she believes in God. But she
also believes that the radio works because there are tiny people
The person in question is Diane Keaton who Allen directed to
an Oscar for Annie Hall way back in 1977. That landmark,
bittersweet, soul-searching tale brought a new level of sophistication
to the comedy genre. Over the years Keaton has gained fame in a
variety of role ranging from The Godfather movies where she
played Al Pacino's wife to the comedy Father of The Bride appearing
opposite Steve Martin.
Keaton is also one of the few women to go behind camera. She
made her film directorial debut with Hanging Up a few years
ago. Keaton's film debut happened over three decades ago in the
comedy Lovers and Other Strangers in 1970.
One of her latest projects is the drama Breaking Through.
This airs on Hallmark on 11 October at 10:15 pm. She plays Patsy
McCartle, a widowed single mother of two young boys struggling with
a part time job. Through an email sent by Indiantelevision.com's
Ashwin Pinto, Keaton spoke about her character,
working on The Godfather trilogy as well as why being a survivor
is something she can relate to.
