Trivia

Robert Pattinson knew the 14-months old girl who plays Willow. She is the daughter of one of his best friends, musician Sam Bradley. They know each other from their school days back in London where they grew up together. Both Claire Denis and Pattinson stated, that while shooting, she took her first steps that were caught on camera. Denis initially cast two twin girls, but the weekend before shooting was about to start on Monday, Pattinson couldn't bond with them because the siblings got upset everytime they were without the other or their mother and started to cry as soon as he picked them up. He and Denis felt not ready to shoot with them because the final film would have been entirely different. Denis also thought that although they were idendical twins, they behaved differently and couldn't so easily be replaced by another when one needed a break. Then on Sunday evening, Pattinson had the idea to ask his friend the last minute and so they flew in his daughter Scarlett Lindsey from London. See more »

Kinetic and Primal Power
26 September 2018 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

A black hole is the destination for a group of young prisoners who, as they come to realize, are not coming back. Or so it seems. Kept on a leash and in suspended animation, fed a steady diet of lies, and treated as experiments and not as human beings, the young perps find their own often brutal ways of rebellion. Yet for Monte, who has a baby daughter to care for, things are more complicated. The responsibility is greater than anything, even than the looming black hole.

"It is important to show" said Claire Denis in Toronto "how people are feeling, even when they are brutal." Raw emotion and primal energy are on display in this kinetic, startling film, as people react when they are backed into a corner (in deep space). Also, there is Juliette Binoche as a narcissistic jailkeeper, so what more do you need?! Claire Denis was able to realize her compelling vision with adequate financial support and star power. Everything aligns for her so well; the cinematography of looking at space, stars and nebulas, the cast, the themes and vision, action and depth, . . so, so good!
