3. ANNE HECHE AS MAGGIE PISTONE IN DONNIE BRASCO (1997)Much like Melissa Gilbert in Blood Vows: The Story Of A Mafia Wife, Anne Heche’s character in Donnie Brasco marries a guy not knowing that she’s on her way to mafia ties. Unlike Gilbert, however, Heche’s movie doesn’t suck.
Donnie Brasco is ultimately Johnny Depp and Al Pacino’s show, but short-haired Heche definitely makes her presence felt as undercover FBI agent Brasco’s (Depp) significant other. She helplessly watches her once-normal husband lose himself in the treacherous mobster world before asking for a divorce.
It’s not like she was asking for too much; there’s nothing wrong with a girl who only wants to associate the words “under” and “cover” with the pressing of flesh. In fact, that sort of lady is the genuine article.
