Massimo was an Italian actor, director and poet best known for the 1994 film “Il Postino”.

This film is the latest instalment of a series of films such as A Mother’s Nightmare, A Sister’s Nightmare and A Daughter’s Nightmare. “A Wife’s Nightmare” has “Liz” (Jennifer Beals) returning home after a mental breakdown, and has to welcome a relative stranger into her home when “Caitlin”, a young, vivacious woman, claims to be her husband’s daughter. The family loves Caitlin, but Liz can’t trust her, and this time she’s not being paranoid.
The film is produced by Tina Pehme and Kim Roberts for A&E International, Lifetime and Corus Networks.
Production company Sepia Films.
Jennifer has taken part in the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for the neurodegenerative illness ALS. Nominated by her friend Kara Swisher, Jennifer took to the ocean for her challenge and nominated Troian Bellisario (Lauren), Don Cheadle (Devil In A Blue Dress) and Kyra Sedgwick (Proof).

On this interview on the Hollywood Reporter producer Kyra Sedgwick talks about how hard it was to find the lead in Proof, until Jennifer walked in….
“I’m so proud of Proof. When I left [The Closer], TNT gave me a producing deal, and I was to bring five projects and they picked this one up. My mandate in my head was I wanted it to be female-driven lead with a woman in her 40s because that was the gift I had been given, and I really wanted to pass that along. We had a really hard time casting it, and then in walks Jennifer Beals.
On a new interview published today on everydayhealth Jennifer reveals her surprising approach to fitness, her unusual beauty commandments, her funny stress-busting routine, why they all keep her looking ageless and why she isn’t afraid of sharks !
It’s been 30 years since Beals famously danced her way through “Flashdance” wearing a cutoff sweatshirt in a scene that would be reenacted around the world for years to come, but the actress hasn’t slowed down one bit.
