Lily Collins: 5 bold roles of the actress

Charming and elegant Lily Collins is the daughter of famous rock musician Phil Collins and a surprisingly interesting actress. From episodes of TV series, adaptations of fairy tales and romantic comedies, she confidently chooses extraordinary projects, takes risks and wins. Familiar to viewers from such films as “Love, Rosie” and “Snow White: Revenge of the Dwarves,” Lily begins to move further and further away from safe images towards bright cinema. Let’s talk about the 5 most interesting roles of Lily Collins.

Rules don`t Apply

When one Hollywood legend makes a film about another Hollywood legend, it’s already worth watching. The great actor and director Warren Beatty (Bonnie and Clyde, Dick Tracy) did just that: he made a film that revolves around the final years of the legendary tycoon Howard Hughes and his film studio, combining fact and fiction.

Lily Collins was invited to play the leading role of an aspiring actress who is torn between Hollywood rules and her own piety, true love and temporary dizziness. And they were right: Collins’s classic beauty, along with the ability to combine the comedic and dramatic aspects of the film, made her the ideal choice.

For her role in “Outside the Rules,” Lily Collins received a Golden Globe nomination. The film also features a galaxy of star actors: Alden Ehrenreich, Annette Bening, Farmiga, Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, and the incredible atmosphere of the Golden Hollywood era.

To the bone

For filming in Marni Nixon’s powerful dramedy “To the Bone”, the already fragile actress had to lose weight to a completely frightening weight, because Collins boldly took on the role of a girl suffering from anorexia.

The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and received high marks from critics, who highlighted the incredibly strong script, which appropriately combined the study of characters and motivations, revealed not only the image of the main character, but also those close to her, and also found life’s humor in the most difficult situations.

By the way, the doctor of the heroine Lily Collins was played by Keanu Reeves, and made this image surprisingly bright and detailed, despite the limited time on the screen. The film was bought at the film festival by the streaming giant Netflix, which has been actively buying up the rights to interesting auteur films in recent years.

Okja

We’re willing to bet that more viewers learned about director Bong Joon Ho after the enchanting success of last year’s “Parasite,” but the talented South Korean author has been working successfully for 20 years, both in his homeland and in the world.

One of his English-language films, the completely unconventional Okja, became a participant in the official competition program of the Cannes Film Festival in 2017. And Lily Collins got the role of a member of an eco-group that definitely does not profess peaceful methods in its actions.

The actress once again became part of an incredible ensemble cast: Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and young An Sio Heng, who played the main role of young Midge, who is trying to save her friend. By the way, the film was co-produced by Tilda Swinton and Brad Pitt. And for fans of Lily Collins, this image was probably unexpected and added to the actress’s vibrant filmography.

This fast-paced legal thriller tells one of the most interesting crime stories in the United States – the case of Ted Bundy, a charming young man who was in fact one of the worst serial killers of the 20th century.

No one expected to see Zac Efron in such a role, but it turned out that it was this casting decision that not only attracted attention to the film, but also served as a surprisingly successful artistic tool. Now everyone remembers Bundy’s victims and forgets about the murderous influence of his charisma on his army of female fans.

Lily Collins played a real woman – Liz Kendall, a beautiful student and single mother, whom Ted Bundy meets and even begins to build a family, and who does not even realize that the person she loves is a real monster. In addition to Zach and Lily, John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, and Kaya Scodelario played in the film. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.

Inheritance

The psychological thriller tells the story of an influential New York family: the father is a financier, the daughter is a prosecutor, the son is a politician, and the mother of the family is directly involved in the work of both the family business and her son’s next election campaign. And suddenly, in the prime of life, the patriarch of the family dies and leaves a personal envelope for his daughter.

This is the role played by Lily Collins, the politician son by Chace Crawford, and the Matriarch of the family by Connie Nielsen. And the famous comedian, actor and screenwriter Simon Pegg played a kind of “inheritance” for his daughter: a mysterious man who was kept in captivity for years by the head of the clan. And “Dark Legacy” gives one of the most striking and unusual images of Simon Pegg.

In turn, the heroine Collins has spent her entire life going against the will of her wealthy and influential parents, but now she is forced to save her family and find out all the secrets of her family. The film was selected for the Trai festival beka and will be available on digital platforms from May 22nd.
