She's tussled with dinosaurs and been serenaded by Nicolas Cage. She's played a glue-huffing delinquent and an actor pushed to her limits, too. She's the kind of star who completely changes every film she's in with her inimitable presence. Yes, we're talking about the one and only Laura Dern.

A constant delight on our screens for more than four decades now, Dern has experienced quite the career — the type that it's always worth celebrating, in fact. So, between Friday, January 14–Saturday, January 22, Golden Age Cinema and Bar is doing exactly that as part of a seven-film season it's calling Wild at Heart: The Films of Laura Dern.

With a name like that, Wild at Heart obviously features on the bill — and, because Dern has multiple collaborations with David Lynch to choose from, so does Inland Empire. Or, you can feast your eyes on her early work in Ladies And Gentlemen The Fabulous Stains and Smooth Talk, jump to the 90s with Citizen Ruth, or see Dern's turn as a determined lawyer in Certain Women.

Yes, Jurassic Park is on the lineup as well — because that film, like life and Laura Dern, always finds a way.
