/ -- Melissa Anschutz starring role in the film Lost Heart, which released fall of 2020, earned her a spot on the 2021 nomination list for 'Best Lead Actress' at ICFF. Her nominations also include the 'People's Choice' for 'Actress of the Year.'
In Lost Heart Anschutz plays burnt out mega-music star Hannah Sweet who returns to her small northern Michigan hometown for her estranged father's funeral. There she will confront her painful past and perhaps find peace and balance once again. Lost Heart inspires forgiveness and takes audiences on a journey of how to heal the broken. It tells the story of Hannah Sweet, who as a teen ran away from an abusive home to become a Nashville music mega star. With a seemingly perfect life of fame, power and money, Hannah was anything but happy. After years of self-medicating, she is left angry, broken and lonely. When she finally hits rock bottom and her father passes away, she is forced to go home. There she will meet Chip, (Josh Perry), a stepbrother she did not know she had and the town's eccentric pastor, Milo, (Don Most). She will also, for the first time in 25 years, confront the mother who left her, played by Victoria Jackson, the ghost of her father and a home where everything has changed!
"After reading the script I was excited about the role because I felt it could inspire those who might feel broken to know that there is hope, in Christ all things are possible," said Anschutz, "To be recognized for the work is certainly an honor and the nomination is a credit to the collective efforts of many."
Jesse Low, Director of Lost Heart states, "Melissa was one of the greatest actor-director experiences I've been a part of. With her taking the lead, really carrying this film in so many ways, she was fantastic!"
Melissa will be attending the award ceremony which will be held in Orlando, Florida at the end of May. You can find more of her work on IMDB. http://www.imdb.me/melormelissa.com
