Anna Smith has two open, feminist discussions with two great actresses.
First up, Rosamund Pike talks about her latest movie, the fast-paced thriller I Care A Lot. She has received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Marla Grayson, a ruthless businesswoman who exploits the care home system. Rosamund sings the praises of Dianne Wiest and reveals her pride in the film’s LGBTQ+ representation. On sex scenes, she reveals a ‘graphic’ scene that didn’t make the cut, and discusses the introduction of intimacy coordinators on set.
Next, Anna chats with Stacy Martin about her recent roles in sci-fi film Archive and serial killer series The Serpent. Stacy considers the challenges she has faced in her career, including the backlash she received for her first film Nymphomaniac. She also delves into how she chooses her roles and why she tries to swerve the love stories. In this chock-full feminist chat, Stacy discusses the pay gap, sitting on the 16 Days 16 Films jury, and why she loves podcasts!
Stacy recommends The Ripper on Netflix, and Rosamund expresses her love for Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland.
