Hell on Heels: The Battle of Mary Kay
Shirley MacLaine is a delight in this 2002 TV-drama based on the war between cosmetics queen Mary Kay Ash and rival Jinger Heath (Parker Posey).
[Ash] is maybe my favorite character now...right up there with Aurora Greenway in 'Terms of Endearment', says MacLaine, who enjoyed the role because she loves playing people who are at times contradictory. She was drawn to the complexity of Ash, who created both a beauty empire and a business opportunity for women. The film begins as Mary Kay is being profiled by a cynical reporter (Rachel Crawford), who changes her story's focus when she learns about BeautiControl, an emerging cosmetics company led by Heath, who's out to face down the competition. Lexy: Shannen Doherty.
