“I would say the difference between Alice and the other women is that she’s not as attached…not as ‘straight’, I guess. I think it’s because of the connection that Jack gives her – she’s able to be her own person, to wear her own clothes, to be a bit more relaxed, more sensual, more sexual. Their relationship is different and it allows it to be essentially more modern. Everything about her is more relaxed, the way she moves, the way she dances throughout the day. The fact that she wears lingerie to say goodbye to him in the morning. Women like to take care of their men. I think playing that role wouldn’t have been half as interesting if Alice and those women hadn’t been engaged in their lives. They really like cleaning the house and making sure everything is perfect. It makes him an interesting character. Everything about her trying to make the most of what she has in front of her without being so uptight is also that she loves it (sic),” Florence said in a statement.
Let’s talk more about the character of the project’s director, Olivia, who received a good response from the public and critics for her previous film Librarytold the media: “At the heart of our film is Alice Chambers, played by Florence Pugh, and she is a character who is so full of intellect, love and warmth that it is impossible not to to connect with. He’s someone that you, as an audience, sympathize with and support, I think from the first moment (sic).”
Sharing her thoughts on casting Florence in the project and her performance, Olivia added, “There is something about Florence that is so smart, the way she questions and considers everything. I thought, ‘That’s the quality we need for Alice.’ Once I spoke to Florence as attacking Alice, I thought, “Now it’s all about that, it’s all about her instincts. Everything else became very clear… who we were going to surround her was worked out based on what she was going to create (sic).
