As Helene McCready -- the mother of the missing child whose disappearance drives Ben Affleck's Gone Baby Gone -- Amy Ryan delivers one of the most praised supporting performances of the year (see either my review or Erik's for further discussion of the film). She's also in Sidney Lumet's Before the Devil Knows You're Dead and even has a bit part in Dan in Real Life; it's a busy Fall for Ryan, and one some Oscar-watchers are thinking will pay off for her. Ryan spoke with Cinematical about the challenges of her part, working with Ben Affleck, her work in Before the Devil Knows You're Dead and even her role on HBO's acclaimed The Wire.
