Winona was then on to the next chapter of her life, including more mature roles and period films. After her part in the independent film Night on Earth, which she played a taxi driver who dreams of becoming a mechanic, she got her chance to work with the director Francis Ford Copolla. Winona signed with Creative Artists Agency and got her hands on the script for the Coppola vehicle Bram Stocker’s Dracula (1992).
Donning corsets once again, she appeared in The Age of Innocence (alongside Michelle Pfeiffer and Daniel Day-Lewis), a film based on a novel by Edith Wharton and helmed by director Martin Scorsese, whom Ryder considers the best director.
Her next starring role was in How to Make an American Quilt (1995). This film was followed by Boys, (1996), a film in which self seems to be pitted against the whole world, with love her only true friend and guide. The movie also considered the credibility of different interpretations of reality, a theme she later explored in Lost Souls. She received yet another nomination in 1994 with Little Women, based on the classic novel of the same name. She also appeared in the Simpsons episode Lisa’s Rival, as a more intelligent girl than Lisa named Allison Taylor.
In 1996, she starred in Al Pacino’s debut as a director, Looking for Richard, and also in The Crucible with Daniel Day-Lewis (1996), a movie about the Salem witch trials and the hysteria that prompted the deaths of many without trials. The movie was praised by critics but was not commercially successful. After, Ryder accepted a role as a humanoid robot in the 1997 film Alien: Resurrection, alongside the Alien series star Sigourney Weaver. Having grown up on the Alien franchise, she signed before having even read a script. Celebrity (1998).
In 1999, she performed in and served as executive producer for Girl, Interrupted, based on the autobiography of Susanna Kaysen. Ryder only made her first talk show appearance in December 1999 on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, to promote Girl, Interrupted.
She went on to portray the fragile, beautiful, young, talented and doomed love interest of Richard Gere’s character in the 2000 romance Autumn in New York.
Around this time, Winona was awarded a star on Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame, sponsored by her Dracula co-star, Sir Anthony Hopkins.
On December 12, 2001, Ryder was arrested for shoplifting thousands of dollars’ worth of designer clothes and accessories at Saks Fifth Avenue department store in Beverly Hills, California. Los Angeles District Attorney Stephen Cooley set up a team of eight prosecutors and seized the opportunity to prosecute the actress aggressively. He filed four felony charges against her in what was described by The Guardian (UK) as a show-trial since the prosecution demanded the trial be televised. Ryder hired noted defense attorney Mark Geragos.
The charges were eventually reviewed, and on June 18, 2004 the felonies were reduced to misdemeanors.
After a two-year hiatus, she returned to the big screen in the Adam Sandler comedy Mr. Deeds.
Then, she produced and narrated the child sex slave trade documentary The Day My God Died (2003) before returning to fiction in a small part in Asia Argento’s The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things (2004).
In 2006, after a long dry spell, Ryder appeared in Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly, a futuristic movie based on Philip K. Dick’s critically acclaimed novel. Ryder portrayed Donna Hawthorne also starring are Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr and Woody Harrelson. Live action scenes were transformed with rotoscope software and the film was entirely animated.
Ryder will be busy in 2007 with three films due to come out. She will first star in the comedy The Darwin Awards, due for release February 2007, with Joseph Fiennes about a forensic detective (Fiennes) and an insurance claims investigator (Ryder) trekking to investigate a potential Darwin Award winner.
Second, Ryder is reuniting with Daniel Waters, who wrote Heathers, for the surreal dark comedy Sex and Death 101 (2007). Filming wrapped July 6, 2006, and is set for release in early mid-Spring 2007.
Winona’s future is anybody’s guess. One thing is clear: Winona would probably prefer to stay out of the headlines. I feel there’s a tendency towards over-exposure,” she said. “I know there are some actors that I don’t want to see for a while, and I don’t want to become one of them myself.
