Benedict Cumberbatch and the Monsters Among Us
Louis is the polar opposite of Phil, a man unable to fulfill the traditionally masculine roles of provider and authority in an era that requires him to care for his mother and five unmarried sisters. He falls inappropriately in love and marries Emily (Claire Foy), the governess of his younger sisters; When she gets sick, he pulls cats to make her happy.
“Over time, Louis’ life takes many dramatic turns, his love of cats deepens and his art changes, and so does the layered performance of the film and Cumberbatch, with its openness, tenderness, and performance control,” Manohla Dargis has written in a new. York Times Review.
Sharp said the actor “wasn’t afraid to put himself in any scenario,” adding in a phone interview that “There was some overlap between Louis and Benedict; an overcrowded diary, full of energy, full of ideas.”
Cumberbatch said he liked everything about Louis Wayne. “I had the same relationship with him as I did with Alan Turing when I did ‘The Imitation Game’: they were both cool characters in a very fast world,” he said, adding that he was concerned about Wayne’s mental health issues. were affected by. “How that loud, mechanized, industrial age could smell like someone who was a real hero to so many people across generations.”
Cumberbatch, who shot to fame nearly a decade ago as a grumpy, brilliant, emotionally disconnected Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series “Sherlock,” is no stranger to wildly unknown characters. He received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Turing; won a BAFTA Award for his role as an abused, drug-addicted wealthy Englishman in the Showtime mini-series “Patrick Melrose”; played the roles of Hamlet and Frankenstein on stage; And currently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Dr. Strange (he’s in the upcoming “Spider-Man: No Way Home”).
“I fit a lot of boring brackets into my personal description,” said Cumberbatch, 45, who is married with kids. “I’m drawn to the otherness of these people, to the difference from my own life experience. I want to understand it from the inside, not go, ‘Oh I know how that feels.'”
