Annette: We all perform our lives in a way. And the actor is a perfect metaphor to get at that theme of 'how do we find our authentic selves?' And that we all -- whether we're actors or not -- perform ourselves. As a way of searching. As a way of fumbling around and trying to say, is this my voice? Is this who I am? What kind of woman am I? Am I the woman that I am when I'm with my children? Or when I'm with my husband? Or with my girlfriends? Or when I run into my old boyfriend? You know. We're all searching.
