Is This Luminously Talented Young Actress the next Jennifer Lawrence?

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-10-2022) #800C: Tracie was blown away by “Adam,” a stunning narrative film about a young girl and the old dog who is her only friend. When Tracie chose the film for the 7th Annual NY Dog Film Festival October 23rd at 2 PM in New York City, she felt sure someone beyond the director, Hope Martinez, would see the brilliance of the young star, Ruth Smith. Tracie speaks to this 16-year-old home-schooled young actress in El Paso, Texas, from where she is heading to college and, Tracie believes, to eventual stardom, if all the stars align for her.
