Anna is a 1987 character drama about a Czech movie star facing the humiliations of anonymity in New York City. Anna (Sally Kirkland, who received an Oscar nomination for the performance) was once the biggest star in her native Czechoslovakia. After the 1968 communist invasion at home, Anna finds herself stranded in America unable to recreate her success or even land the smallest role. Years later, a young Czech ''migr'', Krystyna (Paulina Porizkova), arrives in the city, in search of her idol. Krystyna finds Anna, unhappily married to Daniel (Robert Fields), a narcissistic director; her talent unrecognized. The two women form a friendship with Anna mentoring the beautiful aspiring actress on the acting craft and surviving in a foreign land. At the same time, Krystyna's attention and genuine respect for Anna's talent allows Anna to relive her former glory. When Krystyna gets a movie role that makes her an overnight sensation, the connection between the women becomes more complex.
