Virginia Madsen is one of our most beloved, and stunning, actresses, but she’s much more beautiful on the inside. With her dynamic and Emmy Award-winning mother at her side, she’s produced a documentary that celebrates extraordinary women over the age of 65. Virginia says the film has not only erased any fears she may have once had about aging, it’s made her excited for the next, liberating chapters in her life.
Three pictures from Chicago Premiere of Documentary ‘I Know a Woman Like That’ as part of the 2009 Chicago International Film Festival at Columbia College have been added to the gallery. “I Know a Woman Like That” stars the Oscar-nominated Virginia Madsen. The film is produced by Virginia Madsen, Elaine Madsen and Karly Meola and directed by Elaine Madsen (Virginia’s mom).
