In the 1990s, she moved into films with some controversial subjects: Priest (1994), Mad Love (1995), Face (1997) and Ravenous (1999). After this burst of movies, she returned to high-quality television, but at the time of her death she was working on Cross My Mind, her first cinema film for more than a decade.
