THE WILLOWS...Mrs. Rosemary Willows
“…Of course, I have to mention the fantastic Melinda deKay as Mrs. Rosemary Willows. She is just…WOW. I’ve said it too many times already, but to say anything else would ruin it for you. Just know that the matriarch is truly a force to be reckoned with…”

“…As I shamelessly shoved bread in my face, I was graced with the company of the family's matriarch, Mrs Willows, played by Melinda DeKay (sure, I may be partial because we have the same first name, but, whatever, she was incredible). So good she was at making me feel like I was walking on eggshells, I spent 15 minutes wondering if I should initiate a conversation with her at all. Mrs. Willows' aura was all consuming…”

ALL OUT DYSFUNKTION!...Clarelle
…But I must pay tribute to the excellent acting performance of Melinda deKay. What a sublime rendition.
 Both sober and foggy state…

…And Melinda deKay grounds the whole film and keeps it from spinning off into oblivion…

…Melinda deKay played Clarelle, the landlord of the mansion. Melinda presented us with a very well-rounded character and gives us a character who had “seen it all” in her time and was not deterred by anything. She was strong-willed but was able to show a softer side during the movie…

VIEUX CARRE...Mrs. Wire
    ...Melinda deKay’s demented landlady Mrs. Wire, pitched among Patricia Neal, Anne Ramsey and a banshee, gives     a courageous, affecting performance...
David C. Nichols, LA Times

    ...Melinda deKay plays an addled, overbearing landlady as if such a character were not a tiresome cliché. It’s one of     the most impressive feats in a crowded field…each of a dozen people's work sails through the door of excellence,     but Melinda deKay blows the door across the road…
Jason Rohrer, Stage and Cinema

     …the cast is strong with deKay giving a powerhouse performance as Mrs. Wire…

FEFU AND HER FRIENDS…Julia
    …Julia played by Melinda deKay exemplifies the psychological battlefield on which women struggle in     
    society…Melinda deKay is nothing short of hyperbolic in her portrayal of Julia. She dramatically reveals the     atrocious burden women bear…she takes the audience to the place where woman is punished for being     independent…
The Daily Cougar, Laura Boggus

A LOVELY SUNDAY AT CREVE COEUR…Bodey
    …Melinda deKay gives an unerring painstakingly detailed account of Bodey. She’s garrulous, solicitous, the soul of     good-hearted maternal interference. When her face registers this simple soul’s pain at being insulted by Helena, you feel it too...
