Ophelia review – Deauville 2018

This article may be a bit spoilery as I describe a few scenes. Please make sure to be okay with that before continue reading.

I still can’t believe I had the incredible chance of seeing Ophelia during Deauville Festival. It’s directed by Claire McCarthy and filmed in 2017. Daisy Ridley plays the main part, Ophelia.
The movie opens with a soft lake scene, Daisy lying in water, surrounded by flowers. She fades in it as the title appears on screen. It’s beautiful. Daisy Ridley is ethereal and her long red hair suits her beautifully. She portrays a playful, youthful and rebellious Ophelia who likes to swim in lakes, put flowers in her hair and knows a lot about sciences and philosophy. As the movie starts, you admire the soft cinematography and you witness the beginnings of a love story between Ophelia, Gertrude‘s (Naomi Watts) lady in waiting and Gertrude’s son, Hamlet (George MacKay). But the air is full of mystery and madness slowly sinks in the atmosphere. Ophelia and Hamlet live a passionate (secret) love story together, but his father’s death and Claudius’ (Clive Owen) possible guilt slowly drive him mad. Ophelia takes the lead to her story and tries to make her way out of a dying realm.

Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts’ alchemy is palpable and their scenes together are amazing. I also liked a lot Daisy and George’s scenes. The cinematography from the start to the end is mesmerizing, with strong colors and lovely shots, as well as the music. You can also hear Daisy humming two or three times and she sings a bit during one scene. This is definitely her most complex role yet. You can see her crying, kissing, singing, getting angry, feeling desperate and also being broken. Her costumes varies between blue, beige and red colors and I absolutely loved the party scene, as Daisy is wearing a dress with complex patterns of suns and stars, wearing suns in her hair and heavy deep blue makeup forming a ‘band’ on her eye line.

Ophelia is definitely my favorite movie featuring Daisy yet and I deeply hope it will be picked up. Claire McCarthy‘s work is beautiful and if dialogues and storyline are not the strongest ever, the tale is well told and magic happened.

‘Peter Rabbit 2’ in the Works From Sony Pictures

Peter Rabbit will be up to his old tricks again, and hopefully bring more lettuce, for Sony Pictures.

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Off the surprise success of the CG/live-action hybrid film Peter Rabbit, Sony has announced its intent to make a sequel, dating the next installment for Feb. 7, 2020. The movie will open March 27, 2020, in the United Kingdom. Will Gluck, who directed the first movie, will return to write and direct the sequel.

The movie, which saw James Corden voice the popular character from the Beatrix Potter books and also starred Domhnall Gleeson, proved to be an under-the-radar hit when it was released Feb. 9.

The movie grossed $115 million in the U.S. and is, per Sony, the studio’s biggest-ever non-James Bond film in the U.K., with a $55.7 million gross in that country, where it held the No. 1 spot for four weeks in a row. It grossed $325 million worldwide.
