Jeannie Berlin stars in Kenneth Lonergan's "Margaret," opposite Anna Paquin and J. Smith-Cameron, as Emily.

Jeannie Berlin, a third generation actor-writer-director, began her career on stage at the age of 13 in an off-Broadway production of "Rumpelstiltskin." She's best known for her Oscar nominated performance in Elaine May's "The Heartbreak Kid." Other film credits include "Sheila Levine," "Portnoy's Complaint," "Getting Straight," "The Baby Maker," "On a Clear Day," "Bone," and "In the Spirit," which she co-wrote with Laurie Jones.

She appeared on several television shows most notably, "Columbo." Then returned to the stage to star in "Power Plays" with Alan Arkin and Elaine May, "After the Night and the Music," which was directed by Dan Sullivan, and "Adult Entertainment" in which her performance was reviewed by Ben Brantley as, "A master class in the delicate art of acting."

Recently, she has finished an original screenplay with Mark Hampton, "Criminally Insane," and adapted Anton Chekov's, "The Boor," as a short movie, which she will direct. She is soon to appear in Julian Schlossberg's production of "Rotten Apples."

Berlin's other awards include a Golden Globe Nomination, New York Film Critics Award and National Society of Film Critics Award.
