In 1976, at the age of 15, she was cast by Terrence Malick to play the young narrator in his second film Days of Heaven, which was released in 1978. Manz's part was initially smaller than planned, however Malick was so impressed by her that he invited her to provide the narration of the film, which appeared in the final cut. Manz then appeared in the 1979 film The Wanderers, directed by Philip Kaufman, and played the lead in the Dennis Hopper film Out of the Blue. She appeared in a small role as a robber girl in the Faerie Tale Theatre episode "The Snow Queen".
Her only remaining roles were a spot in the 1979 TV movie Orphan Train as Sarah, one of many orphans relocated from eastern orphanages to farms in the West and Midwest in the late 1800s/early 1900s, a handful in the late 1990s, including a small role in David Fincher's movie The Game, and a larger one in Harmony Korine's Gummo in 1997, playing the mother of one of the main characters.
Manz attended P.S. 190 in Manhattan.
In 1985, Manz married camera operator Bobby Guthrie. The couple have three children.
