Russian actresses in Hollywood
The great star of Soviet cinema glittered brightly in the 70 – 80s in films by Nikita Mikhalkov (Slave of Love, Unfinished Piece) and Vladimir Bortko (Blonde Around the Corner). She left Leningrad in the early nineties and settled in New York City. Her American filmography is not too plentiful, but impressive: three episodes in The Sopranos and quite a prominent role in the drama We Own the Night by one of the best contemporary directors James Gray. Last Solovey’s project was a film Immigrants by the same director, with Joaquin Phoenix and Cotillard Mariyon as partners.
