Elizabeth Debicki was approached for the role of Virginia Woolf mid-way through shooting the critically acclaimed, all female heist film Widows (2018). She had about one month to prepare for the role after finishing up that movie, and admits having been daunted by the prospect of playing the literary icon. "I'd read 'Mrs. Dalloway' and 'To the Lighthouse,' but would not have called myself a Woolf aficionado," she said. To prepare herself for the role Debicki read Woolf's many diary entries and pored meticulously over her body of work. See more »

I have never in my life heard such a wrong music for a particular film. while the costumes, scenography and everything else is aiming to be realistic, historical, MUSIC is completely unrelated to any of that...it doesn't communicate in any way with the rest of the film. it makes it very hard to watch, creates distraction.
