The Argentine Republic is the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, and the second largest in Latin America. It has a great diversity of climates that go from the hottest to the coldest; He is also recognized for his contributions to culture and art, with writers such as Julio Cortázar, Victoria Ocampo, Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares. It was also the homeland of Quino, creator of Mafalda, a popular character who even had a cameo in the recent DC Comics film The Suicide Squad – 91%.
Last Night in Soho It was premiered at the 2021 Venice Film Festival and received mostly positive reviews, with special mention to the two leading actresses. In the tape, the character of Thomasin McKenzie is a fashion student named Eloise in the current age, but obsessed with the 1960s. For some reason the girl is transported to 1966 London in the body of a singer named Sandy, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. The film is in the psychological thriller genre, and given the abilities of the British filmmaker, we can expect something good.
In a recent interview with Tatler, the actress described Last Night in Soho in a very peculiar way, since he said that it is like “a very well-directed trip in acids”, and added that it is a project that he has been passionate about since in 2015 he spoke for the first time with Edgar wright. The original idea for the film comes from the filmmaker’s own experience, who walked through central London and imagined the stories behind the opulent buildings. To play this role, Taylor-Joy did research on the 1960s and the music that she grew up loving herself:
Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick were only active and working for about a year and a half, which blows my mind, it feels like it was a great expansive moment and so influential, yet it was a flash in the pan. And the London of the sixties was like that.
We do not know if it will be soon (or if it will happen) that she will return to live in Argentina, but what is already a fact is that Taylor-Joy’s career is in a great moment, and it is most certain that she will continue to work with great filmmakers and giving increasingly surprising performances. In April 2022 we will see her in The Northman, by Robert Eggers.
