Parker Posey is happy about her role on “The Big C”

HollywoodNews.com: Parker Posey, who gained the title “Queen of the Indies” through her string of popular independent features in the ’90s (“Personal Velocity,” “Best in Show,”
etc.), finds what’s going on in the indie film world today “really hard” and
“really painful.”
That would include moviemaker John Waters’ decision to pull the plug on his
planned “Fruitcake” flick, to which Posey was attached, and his declaration last year that in this economy he was “going to have to do a puppet show.”

“I don’t want to lose the small stories that these independent directors create,” Posey says. “There are so many writers and directors out there who see things that would inspire and enlighten people about what it is to be a human being.”

She did make the forthcoming “Price Check” indie comedy in January, but, she says, “I felt sad at the end of each day. I had a great time working on it — but I couldn’t help thinking, ‘If this was the ’70s, it would be a real budget, and they’d have more than three weeks to do it.’ A lot of movies that get made get thrown together because they’re a certain genre. That’s where we are now.
