old-age: A Will of Their Own

A Will of Their Own

A TV mini-series with its heart in the right place and a cast and crew who clearly believed in the project: women can be strong, and being true to yourself is both essential and painful. Unfortunately it just doesn’t work.

The movie chronicles the life of photographer Amanda Steward (Lea Thompson) through the twentieth century.

The makeup

Matthew Mungle (W.M. Creations inc) was responsible for the special makeup effects that aged Lea for the role using foam-latex prosthetics; Melanie Levitt was the key makeup artist.

It’s interesting to compare Lea’s aged look in this movie with her appearance at a similar ages in the Back To The Future movies.
