When Holly Hunter first attracted widespread attention in "Broadcast News," she was playing a character whose personality was strikingly similar to her own. Jane Craig was a fast-talking, even faster-thinking, newswoman who worked so hard she had to pencil in her own crying jags. Six years later, Hunter has the second defining role of her career in "The Piano," which opens Wednesday at the County Theater in Doylestown. The movie calls for Hunter to convey horrific emotional extremes. As Ada McGrath, a mute mail-order bride sent to New Zealand to live with a man she's never met, Hunter expresses terror, joy, revulsion and sexual satisfaction. Playing Ada appears to have pushed Hunter to a new level as an actress.

In some cases nudity is itself the object of a film or is used in the development of the character of the subject. In some cases, nudity has been criticized as "superfluous" or "gratuitous" to the plot, and some film producers have been accused of including nudity in a film to appeal to certain audiences.
