But no doubt, the movie “Working Girl”, directed by Mike Nichols and starring (except for Melanie) Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, and Alec Baldwin are one of the brightest in the actress’s career. The story about the girl, who was too shy to demonstrate her business talent at first, but then after a string of troubles dared to take her destiny to her own hands, brought Dakota’s mother a number of prestigious awards, including Oscar nomination and Golden Globe award. After that, she appeared in another serious film, named “Stormy Monday”. Modern viewers know Melanie as Tamara from “Raising Hope” and Jackie from “The Path”.
