Keira Knightley believes his new film, ‘Silent Night’, should come with a warning as the subject may be close to home after the coronavirus pandemic
Keira Knightley thinks her new film, “Silent Night”, should “come with a warning.”
The 36-year-old actress fears black comedy is hitting too close to her home due to the coronavirus pandemic, because although it poses a threat to the world due to climate change, not a virus, it does have topics that have become familiar to many over the past couple of years, such as blockages, food shortages, and emotional moments on video calls.
She said: “I think that should come with a warning, because now everyone comes to the movie with a lived experience, hopefully not as horrible as this one, but it suddenly got a lot rawer. . “
Filming for the film – which also stars Matthew Goode, Annabelle Wallis, Lily-Rose Depp and Lucy Punch – ended just two days before the UK’s first lockdown in March 2020 and Keira admitted filming was “Really weird” because there were so many parallels to real life events.
She told Stella magazine: “It was really weird. We were making a movie about an experiment, and then the experience suddenly started happening around us.
“We were shooting scenes on stores running out of food at the same time as the news became full of stories that all the toilet paper was gone.
“The last scenes we shot before closing were our family death scenes and we were desperately trying to finish so Lily-Rose could return to Paris to be with her mother. [Vanessa Paradis] before closing the borders. It was incredibly strange for everyone. “
When sent the script for the film, which includes scenes of parents killing their children, Keira’s agent warned her that she might “hate” the project, but it immediately captivated him.
She said: “I am not afraid of litigation.
“It’s impossible for everyone to love you. It’s just a job you’re never going to win, but I like doing a job that people will engage in, whether it’s positive or negative. I think it is. is a very exciting place to be. “
