After her stand-out, bubbly, and hilarious perf in Rainy Day in NY it occurred to me Fanning hasn't done much comedy but seems to have a real knack for it. That could make this whole thing worth seeing - and it looks well made production-wise, especially like the soft-focus visuals.
I'd forgotten all about this,it looks great.And yes,it does feel very similar to The Favourite,which is a huge plus.
How is Fanning's RP English accent? Sally Potter's Ginger & Rosa is perhaps my favorite performance of hers - she is so talented.
Pretty great actually.She's had a lot of practice will Maleficent I guess,but she's one of the few American actors who can truly nail an English accent.I haven't seen Ginger & Rosa but I thought she was fantastic in Somewhere and The Neon Demon.She was the best thing about A Rainy Day in New York too.
Tyler I love how Fanning is both a muse and a fan to Coppola She fits her style like a glove.
I'm very excited for this! So eager to see if Tony McNamara's script can be as good as The Favourite's, and the idea of a Veep-ish period piece on Catherine the Great is too good to deny. It also doesn't hurt that Fanning and Hoult will be able to delve into their underrated comic timing.
