Here’s how Wine­house, Cobain’s lives in­spired Moss

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Elizabeth Moss says that she stud­ied the doc­u­men­taries on the lives of late mu­si­cians Kurt Cobain and Amy Wine­house, and late Hol­ly­wood star Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe to pre­pare for her role in the film Her Smell.

The 36-year-old ac­tor plays Becky Some­thing, a self-de­struc­tive punk rocker who strug­gles with so­bri­ety while try­ing to re­cap­ture the cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion that led her band to suc­cess.

“I watched many mu­sic doc­u­men­tary I could get my hands on, hon­estly,” Moss told d IndieWire.

“All the usual sus­pects, Kurt Cobain: Mon­tage of Heck which I’d al­ready seen but now I’ve seen a mil­lion times, Amy, the Amy Wine­house doc­u­men­tary. And also things on Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe... just to get a grasp of that fame and ad­dic­tion,” added the ac­tor seen in The Hand­maid’s Tale.

The film, di­rected by Alex Ross Perry, had its world pre­miere at the on­go­ing Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.
