She is an Oscar-nominated Actress -- she's that woman who snuggled up to the A-list actor you fantasize about and the lady who played a strong female role you thought no longer existed in Hollywood. Vera Farmiga is also now a director. Her new feature film, Higher Ground takes a look at the religious awakening and confusion of a young woman in small town America. She spoke with New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi about film, celebrity and what it was like growing up as a Ukrainian-American.
