Elle Fanning Embraces ‘Neon Demon’s’ Divisive Reaction, Reveals Most Difficult Role to Date

16 August 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elle Fanning got her start in the business — and her SAG card — before the age of 3, when Jessie Nelson, the director of “I Am Sam,” starring 7-year-old Dakota Fanning and Sean Penn, needed someone to play Dakota’s sister in a flashback. Recruiting Elle for that role was a no-brainer. Fifteen years later, she’s emerged as one of the most exciting and consistently compelling actors of her generation, tackling indie dramas (“Somewhere,” “Ginger & Rosa”), blockbusters (“Maleficent”) … and whatever the heck “The Neon Demon” was.

Mark Williams & Sara Hirakawa for Variety

Fanning was only 16 when she shot that twisted, lurid film from Nicolas Winding Refn. If fact, she was too young to see it in theaters. “The Neon Demon” caused a divisive reaction from audiences when it premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Fanning, now 18, is taking the response to the film with grace. “Some amazing movies have been torn apart [in Cannes],” she notes. »

Through the Looking-Glass…Top 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2017: #6. Walter Hill’s Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale

Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale

Director: Walter Hill

Writers: Walter Hill, Denis Hamill

Following a remarkable year in cinematic transgender representation with films like Sean Baker’s Tangerine, Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, and Gaby Dellal’s About Ray, not to mention prolific public figures such as Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox maintaining notable visibility, positive depictions of the transgender community have marked 2015 as a watershed year. But not unlike the first wave queer theory which bitterly criticized historically negative depictions of Lgbt characters prior to the early 90s New Queer Cinema movement, Trans representation is under increased scrutiny, which results in severe cultural policing. One of the reasons we fail to see queer characters utilized in contemporary genre film is due to an exploitative history we’ve been unable to divorce ourselves from, those unseemly memories of demeaning cinematic representation.
