González also explained why this role gave him the opportunity to break free from the stereotypes that the industry has given him.
Eiza Gonzalez is often a standout in his films – Baby driver, Paradise hills Y Bloodshot, Just to name a few. But I am convinced that very few projects really take full advantage of the range it has, and now I care a lot prove it. Rosamund pike She directs the film as Marla Grayson, a super smart entrepreneur who works as a court appointed guardian. While Marla may seem like a saint helping those in need, what she is really doing is manipulating the system so that she can control the assets of her wards and simply send them to a care center.
Gonzalez she intervenes as Fran, Marla’s girlfriend and her partner in this whole operation. While Marla is the soft talker of the two to appear in court and manages to get out of (most) difficult situations, Fran is busy handling things behind the scenes. While Fran is very dedicated to her scheme, operating with ambition and confidence, she is the only one of the two with a moral compass. When they target a potential neighborhood with a lot of money and ties to a mobster, Marla is willing to push and push to get what she wants, while Fran expresses serious apprehension about the risk required.
With the movie now available to stream on Netflix, I had the opportunity to chat with Gonzalez about a bunch of qualities that make Fran stand out in the movie, one of which is something we don’t see too often on screen: a character. . who does not wear makeup. Was that part of Fran’s character description even before Gonzalez took the concert? This is what he said:
“It was not. I can’t take all the credit because it’s a creative team and that’s why it’s amazing to work with incredible costumes, makeup, hair, the director’s vision. You can see it, the movie is very stylized and they are polar opposites and we wanted to keep that; make them iconic but in their own little world, and suit their personalities. The clarity, the clean lines of Marla versus the clutter of Fran. ”
As González explains, Fran’s gaze also reflects where she comes from and how she prefers to operate now:
“Our makeup artist is amazing and I felt bad because I kept turning down makeup. And I was like, ‘I just don’t think she wears makeup.’ And she said, ‘But it’s …’ And I said, ‘I understand, but Fran is a woman who comes from bail. She’s a fly on the wall. ‘ She doesn’t want to be seen and she also feels very comfortable in her own skin. ”
Fran’s makeup and fashion choices also gave González the opportunity to play a different kind of character, one with qualities that break the mold of the roles she offers him most often. Here’s how she put it:
“And I think that for me, especially my experience like the things I’ve done and the things that people choose me for, there is this predisposed idea that I have to be beautiful or the stereotypes that people like to wear and that. It was exciting that J was willing to play and he said, ‘Yeah, don’t wear makeup.’ It was like, this feels like this woman. It’s not me with an agenda. It just feels like Fran is that person. And it simply transforms you because it allows you to live in someone else’s skin. That’s not Eiza, it’s Fran. She’s in Vans and she’s in these shirts and the way I’m wearing it allows you to have a different physique. ”
