She was the hipster icon of the 90s with her leopard prints, neon bras and plastic sunglasses went on to become cool hits. Her onscreen personas were raw and original to the core, contrasting the conventional Hollywood stereotypes of representing women. Yes, we are discussing about Patricia Arquette, one of Hollywood’s greatest actors ever. Patricia Arquette never bothered about the star system or elite women squad of Hollywood when she played the prostitute-turned-outlaw Alabama in Quentin Tarantino’s 1993 script ‘True Romance,’ the new mother of David O. Russell’s ‘Flirting with Disaster’ in 1996, or the doppelganger in David Lynch’s ‘psychogenic fugue’ of 1997, ‘Lost Highway.’
But, it took years for the Academy to turn its head towards her. She won her first Oscar for the best-supporting-actress for her role as a single mother from Texas in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood in 2015. Lending herself for a movie which shot for 12 long years was unheard in Hollywood. But, Patricia Arquette allowed the camera to document her ageing process without any inhibitions. She took home a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her dedication and hard work for the 12-year-long performance. So, you must be wondering what is the next Patricia Arquette movie/tv show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming films/shows of Patricia Arquette scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020.
