Susan Sarandon won an Oscar for playing the real-life Sister Helen Prejean. Her career has gone from playing a hooker to playing a nun. If this doesn’t show off Susan Sarandon’s range, I don’t know what does. Set at the turn of the century, the movie Pretty Baby features Susan Sarandon working in a brothel. After discovering she is pregnant, she decides to make the best of the situation. That is to keep working and raise the child in that environment. 12 years pass and that is when this story takes a sharp turn.
