My friend Henri was a big fan of Diane Lane years before I got around to his point of view. Lane was
born in New York City, the daughter of a drama coach. 1979's "A Little Romance" landed her on the cover of TIME magazine
when she was only fifteen. In 1983 she starred in two Francis Ford Coppola films, "The Outsiders" and "Rumble Fish".
Later efforts included "Lonesome Dove" (1989) and "Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All" (1994), both made for TV,
as well as the big screen's "Chaplin" (1992), "A Walk on the Moon" (1999), and 2000's "The Perfect Storm" and "My Dog Skip".
In 2002, she created a sensation when "Unfaithful" was released; it brought Lane her first Oscar nomination. "Under
The Tuscan Sun" followed in 2003.
