Our brains have been described as the greatest computer on earth yet in terms of memory it would have to be the greatest computer in ten galaxies to remember every incident in our lives.

There are just too many details.

There are occurrences that do break through.

Why do we remember so much about our first love experience?

In part because it’s unique, new and novel.

That’s how our brain seems to work.

“The greatness of art is not to find what is common but what is unique.”… Isaac Bashevis Singer

It must work that way otherwise I am at a great loss to explain why, when I became mesmerized watching the gorgeous blonde with the girl next door looks Dianna Agron star in the Independent film Bare, I didn’t remember seeing her before.

I thought to myself that this new girl could break through with her performance as a passive girl in a small desert town who is easily swayed in many directions.

Most of them bad.

Bare is a 2015 American drama film written and directed by Natalia Leite and produced by Alexandra Roxo, Natalia Leite, and Chad Burris. It stars Dianna as Sarah Barton (a name easy to forget) Dianna Agron, Paz de la Huerta, Chris Zylka, and Louisa Krause.

The film follows a young woman living in a small desert town in Nevada, who becomes romantically involved with a female drifter who leads her into a life of drugs, stripping, and psychedelic spiritual experiences.

Talk about going in bad directions.

IFC Films released it on October 30, 2015, in a limited release and through video on demand.

It appears that there are fans a plenty who appreciate that Dianna has made her breakthrough in the industry.

The fun site famousbirthdays.com shares a note, “Actress who became known as the high school cheerleader Quinn Fabray on Glee, for which she won a Breakthrough Of The Year Award in 2010.”

As far as breaking through, Dianna had already busted down the Hollywood door a long time ago and the odd thing is, I have seen many of those TV shows (except for Glee) and yet I didn’t remember her.

Let’s see if you non-Glee fans do.

Dianna Elise Agron is an American actress, singer, and dancer. In 2006, Ms. Agron made her television debut as Jessica Grant on CSI: NY. From 2006 to 2007, she had recurring roles on Veronica Mars as Jenny Budosh, and Heroes as Debbie Marshall.

In 2009, Dianna was cast as Quinn Fabray on the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee.

Agron has appeared in the films The Hunters (2011), I Am Number Four (2011), The Family (2013), Zipper (2015), and Bare (2015).

Her profile at the fantastic acting and artistic profile site imdb.com is extremely impressive. They announce, “While Dianna was growing up, she spent much of her time performing. She began dancing at the age of three, focusing mainly on jazz and ballet, and she later began hip-hop dancing as well. Dianna also spent much of her time performing on stage, appearing in many local musical theater productions when she was younger.”

After graduating from high school (Go Burlingame Panthers!), Dianna decided to pursue acting as a career and began appearing in several commercials and television shows including CSI: NY (2004) and Numb3rs (2005).

Now I know I watched many episodes of those shows, especially Numb3rs. This beautiful girl should have stood out. Shame on me.

Now this is going to be embarrassing.

In 2010 Dianna was named one of People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People.

Did you remember that?

She won a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2010 for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Okay, there is more.

In 2011 she jumped up 18 spots from her previous ranking in “The 2011 After Ellen’s Hot 100 List”, coming in at number eight.

At the exciting site wwd.com they continue to have an eye on Dianna’s career. They announce, “Dianna Agron, a recent transplant to New York, has learned through firsthand experience that city living comes with its share of overexposure: if you live near a hotel, you might just catch glimpses of guests in the nude as part of your daily routine.

In her first major role since starring as Quinn Fabray on “Glee” for six seasons, Agron joins Melissa Leo, Margaret Qualley and Morgan Saylor in “Novitiate,” out now.”

Very intriguing. Not only is Novitiate not your typical Hollywood project, even the Indies hesitate to tackle this subject. That’s what makes it unique.

Please remember, being unique contributes to being memorable.

“For me, being memorable is more important than winning.”… Ricki Lake

Novitiate is a 2017 American drama film written and directed by Margaret Betts. Starring Margaret Qualley, Melissa Leo, Morgan Saylor, Dianna Agron, Julianne Nicholson, Liana Liberato, Denis O’Hare and Maddie Hasson, the film follows a young woman (Qualley) who starts to question her faith as she trains to become a nun.

The penetrating review site that we love, rogerebert.com praises, “A movie about nuns in the ’60s may not sound exciting. It may not even sound vaguely intriguing. But Betts wisely depicts these young women as individuals who contain multitudes, even within such a structured setting. They’re full of contradictions as they figure out who they are and what their place is in the world—just like any young woman in any walk of life.”

The uniqueness of this storyline makes this a film worth exploring.

The fact that Dianna is cast therein makes it must see movie watching.

How do I know that Dianna is a brilliant actress with depth? She played Sarah Barton in such a believable way I just never would have connected her to the elegant, gorgeous and sophisticated (San Francisco Bay Area, New York resident) young woman that she is in real life with a present we would die for and a future that would make us feel unbelievably alive with great expectations.

I really saw her as Sarah Barton, a person lacking in passion, easily influenced and dominated by others, listless, purposeless and incredibly sexy in all of the wrong ways.

Right up until the end.

Sarah’s future is one most of us would run away from.

In terms of an acting performance, that is unique and novel. How many star actors that we know of, who shall remain nameless, seem to play variations of the same person over and over?

This is why I will always remember Dianna Agron.

It’s the way our brain works.

Dianna’s world is filled with wonder. She says so herself in one of her public quotes. “What a world we live in. I want to be incredibly close to the heart of it all. To live honestly, truthfully and to be completely present is the ultimate enterprise. And right now, I couldn’t possibly ask for anything more. I am a very lucky girl.”

Okay, let’s all remember that.
