Isn't the real question "why didn't Juliet Stevenson do the movie of Death and the Maiden?"

Stevenson got rave notices in London, but Equity would not allow her to come to Broadway. As the linked article hints, Close could not live up to Stevenson's hype and ended up seeming like an also ran in comparison (even though most Americans has not seen Stevenson).

The Broadway production did not have good word of mouth and my memory is that the reviews were not so strong---perhaps in part because of Stevenson's shadow.
