Vanessa Kirby Has Been Waiting for a Role That Scares Her


#Even as these supporting roles brought her critical praise and awards, #Kirby wasn’t in a hurry to find her first onscreen lead role, she said. #She’s played many complex characters onstage: women like #Rosalind, the fiercely intelligent heroine of #Shakespeare’s “As #You #Like #It.” #She was holding out for an onscreen lead in whom she could feel some of #Rosalind’s “magic,” she said, which made performing “like flying when you step onstage.”

“I could never find those roles at all onscreen,” she said. #So she waited, using her smaller parts as opportunities to observe and learn, asking #Anthony #Hopkins about his craft when they worked together on the #British TV drama “The #Dresser,” and watching how generous #Rachel #McAdams was onset for the film “About #Time,” she said.

#It’s fitting, given #Kirby’s theatrical background, that “Pieces of a #Woman” started life as a play, written by #Kata #Weber, #Mundruczo’s partner, who drew on the couple’s own experience of losing a child. The play “Pieces of a #Woman,” which is set in #Poland, consists of only two scenes: the birth, and an explosive dinner with #Martha’s family that occurs about halfway through the film adaptation. #Its 2018 premiere, directed by #Mundruczo at the TR #Warszawa theater in #Warsaw, was a hit, and the production is still in the company’s repertoire.

#Around the time #Mundruczo turned 40, five years ago, he started wanting a bigger audience for his work, he said, so he switched from working in #German, #Hungarian and #Polish; “Pieces of a #Woman” is his first #English-language film. #In adapting the play for the big screen, #Mundruczo set it in #Boston, he said, because he felt the city’s #Irish #Catholic culture mirrored #Poland’s conservative social landscape.

The loss of a pregnancy is rarely featured in onscreen entertainment. #Mundruczo said he hopes watching #Martha’s experiences will encourage “people to be brave enough to have their own answer for any loss,” he said.
