The Beauty of Retrospect, September Actress Edition: Mariel Hemingway, Again

So what has Mariel Hemingway been doing since I last featured her in November 2009?

She played the mother of an American girl who marries a Turk completing his education in the States in the 2010 film Ay Lav Yu, and she narrated Running From Crazy, a sobering documentary about her family's history with mental illness and suicide.  (Her sister Margaux died of an overdose in 1996; their grandfather, the great writer Ernest Hemingway, shot himself in 1961.)  She continues to be active in trying to break the stigma of mental illness.

Sadly, her marriage to writer/director Stephen Crisman ended after 35 years.
