The movie earned both actress nominations for an Academy Award. It was directed by Jean-Marc Vallee who directed “Dallas Buyers Club,” which won an impressive amount of awards during the award season in 2014.

The two have been having fun together virtually by reenacting scenes from their favorite TV shows.

“So blessed to have friends to distantly walk through this with. And nature!”
