The american actress Anna Kendrick spoke with Efe about his new film “A Simple Favor,” which recently premiered in the mainland, and expressed the hopes to help end the “mommy wars”, the war between working mothers and stay-at-home,
“The intention is to teach you how every mom is doing the best they can,“ said Kendrick.
“I’m not a mom and I feel the pressure that there is on my friends that yes they are. (The movie) is a way of saying that they are all doing the best we can,“ he explained.
Kendrick plays the character of Stephanie, a mom of those that seem perfect and who bestows that excellence on YouTube, space in which to explore topics in parenting.
Widow with a big secret in tow, the life of Stephanie is a little more complicated when Emily ( Blake Lively), who runs the public relations of a fashion designer famous, begins a campaign of seduction, which works only by loneliness who suffer the mothers who stay at home on the outskirts of the large cities of the united States.
That solitude and the ability to embody a character that you are going by undoing the perception that others have of women dedicated to be a mom “was irresistible” to Kendrick, in addition to the possibility of being part of the new wave of suspense movies focused on women.
“I think that the best of the genre of the mystery that has become fashionable again, especially with female protagonists, is that it recognizes that women have secrets,” said the actress, who takes a positive view of everything that is engaged to break female stereotypes.
“Some have secrets literal, as the character of Blake, but Stephanie has so much below the surface, and I think that represents a lot of women, that one believes he already knows how they are and it turns out that underneath there’s a world inside no one else had noticed,” he said.
