The articles profiles actress Samantha Morton, a star in the motion picture 'In America.' Morton, 26, is getting Oscar buzz and critical applause for In America, playing a young Irish mother who, grieving from the death of a child, escapes to New York City with her unemployed husband and two daughters. Morton's own childhood in Nottingham, England, supplied her with a lifetime's worth of drama. One of eight siblings, she was raised in foster care after her dad, Peter, a Scottish coal miner and poet, and mom, Pamela, a Polish factory worker, split when she was 3. After her successful trio of BBC miniseries--'Emma,' 'Tom Jones,' and 'Jane Eyre'--caught the eye of Woody Allen, who cast her in 'Sweet and Lowdown.' Now Hollywood is calling constantly. Next year she'll costar with Tim Robbins in the love story 'Code 46' and in 'Enduring Love' from director Roger Michell (Notting Hill).
