When she re-applied for the same role, the casting director hired her. She went on to appear in such films as Frankie Starlight (1995), Illuminata (1998), and A Soldier's Sweetheart (1998). She received critical acclaim for her role as Amanda in Clay Pigeons (1998) with Vince Vaughn and Joaquin PhoenixFollowing a hiatus of seven years from the film industry, Cates made a comeback in the independent film sector with her role in "Sinner."
