Rosamund Pike, Eiza Gonzalez on How ‘I Care A Lot’ Breaks

J Blakeson’s “I Care A Lot” follows two girls who hustle their method to massive bucks in a repulsive method simply to seize that brass ring and reside the American dream. And it was that satirical method to the all-too acquainted story that drew it stars Rosamund Pike and Eiza González to the script.

“J had written something so delicious and sort of appalling and something that drew you in,” Pike advised TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven in the course of the Toronto International Film Festival. “I used to be utterly bewitched by Marla and her hustle as a result of it’s all the time enjoyable to observe somebody who’s extremely good at what they do. Even if what they do is abhorrent, you continue to marvel on the thoughts that got here up with the plan.

“I thought, ‘God, this is clever’ because it’s a satire on the American Dream,” Pike continued. “She’s unashamedly going for what Americans are told is absolutely right to go for…She tried playing fair and got screwed in the past, so now she’s done playing fair. Playing fair gets you nowhere. And as you can see in the film, the system is set up so that people who don’t play fair win, and it’s sort of appalling but you are riveted by the way it’s possible.”

González agreed, tossing a praise at her costar and the “mind-bending and ground-breaking” characters she has chosen to play all through her profession.

“They don’t always follow the stereotype of what the woman should be, and I felt Fran and Marla felt like that,” González stated. “Marla is this beautiful meaty character, but Fran for me felt very different to anything I had done before… I wanted to be part of a movie where I can watch something that doesn’t feel like the woman has to apologize. It’s nice to be able to be part of a movie that I feel men have so many movies like that and we don’t. I was grateful that J did a script like this and gave actresses the opportunity to do something special and unique.”

“I Care A Lot” follows Marla (Pike) as she units herself up because the authorized guardian of aged folks after they don’t have somebody who will handle them. But quickly, she makes a giant mistake when she takes on the fallacious aged consumer. Peter Dinklage, Chris Messina and Dianne Wiest additionally star.
