THE PLASTIC DOME OF NORMA JEAN
DIRECTOR: JULEEN COMPTON
CAST: SHARON HENESY, ROBERT GENTRY, MARCO ST. JOHN
With her second film, Compton took a dive into the supernatural, telling the story of the clairvoyance-blessed titular teenager (Sharon Henesy) as she’s manipulated by an unscrupulous rock band who want to harness her powers for their own ends. Shot on location in the Ozarks and bolstered by a sweet Michel Legrand score, it’s an enchanting magical realist miracle that only gets stranger as it goes along.
