I was not know how old holly hunter`s domestic partners is? How old is Gordon Macdonald?

Watch Holly at the piano, resolute and mute with that performance richly deserving an Oscar: The Piano; as shy singleton TV team-worker in clever: Broadcast News ...admire her versatility. I now salute her from across the Big Pond... a terrific player and lovely !

She is an amazing actress. She has the perfect spice to her personally to pull off the career. She was fantastic in "Harlan Country War", "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", "Living out loud", and "Little black book", etc. But the one I like her in MOST so far, is "Copy Cat". This is mostly because, this movie is the one I had discovered
her in and became her fan in the first place.
