There's anger in Molly Ringwald's voice as she narrates these accounts of Maria Schneider's memories of the movie LAST TANGO IN PARIS, in particular Schneider's notorious sex scene with Marlon Brando. Mostly, Ringwald's narration captures author Vanessa Schneider's writing, which sounds as though she's conversing with her late cousin. Vanessa's many recollections are brief--full of sadness at Maria's life, which included a heroin problem and treatment in a sanatorium. She also recalls Maria's joys, such as drawing with pastels. Ringwald does a great re-creation of the vague, seemingly offhand comments that Maria gave to a reporter's questions about the shocking movie scene. The audiobook is a loving tribune, even as it reveals the toll that the controversial film took on the actress's life. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
