Imagine stretching a rubber band between the index finger on one hand and the thumb on the other. Now visualize pulling your fingers as far apart as possible.
… and pulling…
Somebody will always get hurt when you do that.
MARGO MARTINDALE audio excerpt: “I like intense. In a movie, you can let go at the end of the day. On stage, you kind of have to live it until the run is over. But I love acting. It’s like playing in my backyard.”

That’s what I pictured happening upstairs to Margo Martindale’s character, Janice Trimble, in her new movie, Scalene. And that’s just in the opening minutes.
Martindale plays the mother of a brain-damaged teenage boy whose needs are making her life miserable and diminishing her in every possible way. She snaps like a rubber band as the movie begins and it’s all exposition from there.
Besides Martindale, this indie film features a strong performance by Hanna Hall, who looks from certain angles like a young Drew Barrymore.
Watching Scalene, I couldn’t help but wish a nice romantic comedy on this talented actress. Or maybe a buddy comedy with Kathy Bates!
Joining me today is Margo Martindale, who won the 2010 Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her role on FX’s “Justified.” You may have also seen her last season as a regular on the short-lived CBS series “A Gifted Man” or more recently in the USA series “Suits.”
Scalene, which co-stars Hanna Hall (she played a young “Jenny” in Forrest Gump) will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 31
