We’ve only seen a couple of TIFF films but nothing of note.
Sienna Miller does a dance routine in her underwear in American Woman.
Alexa Demie is in her underwear in Mid90s.
And from Venice, we were wrong about there being nudity from Aisling Franciosi in The Nightingale. There are some graphic rape scenes involving Aisling so it is probably better this way. The only nudity is from Magnolia Maymuru who wears a top that doesn’t cover her right breast.
TIFF starts tomorrow so here’s a quick preview.
Films we think likely won’t have any nudity:
A Million Little Pieces – Doubtful even though Odessa Young is playing a former sex worker.
Destroyer – Don’t think there is anything from Nicole Kidman.
Her Smell – Skimmed the script and didn’t notice anything interesting but it has a nice cast including Elisabeth Moss, Amber Heard, Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, Dylan Gelula, and more.
Teen Spirit – We saw about 20 minutes of this and it seems to be your typical coming of age movie minus the romance. On the other hand, Elle Fanning surprisingly is a decent singer.
The Death and Life of John F. Donovan – Doubt this will have any female nudity so nothing from Natalie Portman, Thandie Newton, Sarah Gadon, etc.
Vox Lux – Wrote before that it was doubtful there was anything from Natalie Portman or Stacy Martin.
Films we think will have nudity:
Gloria Bell – The original had nudity so Julianne Moore will likely deliver.
Tell It to the Bees – The script has several sex scenes with Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger.
Vita & Virginia – We mentioned before that Elizabeth Debicki is topless during a sex scene with Gemma Arterton.
Of course, we’d love to be wrong about the films in the unlikely category. Stay tuned as we’ll have some reviews up over the next two weeks.
Rumor is Lucy Fry has been cast in The Godfather of Harlem on Epix. Lucy is set to play the head mobster’s daughter who is sleeping with the enemy. The character has a sex scene in the pilot script.
The Venice Film Festival starts tomorrow so here’s a brief recap of films we’ve already discussed.
We mentioned before that Dakota Johnson and Mia Goth were topless in Suspiria. Chloë Grace Moretz is also naked but it’s a full body suit or makeup. Also, Aisling Franciosi should have some nude scenes in The Nightingale as her lactating breasts seem to figure into the plot quite a bit. We also mentioned before that we don’t think there is any nudity in Vox Lux.
We’ve now also seen the Emma Stone nude scene in The Favourite. Emma is lying down on the bed on her right side so that her head is on the left side of the screen. Olivia is spooning Emma with her arm around Emma’s waist. And we see Emma’s left breast is exposed just above the blanket and Olivia’s arm. Emma’s right breast is unfortunately covered by her right arm. Should also note that we see Emma’s entire left breast and not just a nipple peek. The scene is brief and pretty dark as the only lighting is from Rachel Weisz’s flickering candle light as she spies on Emma and Olivia.
For those asking about the Netflix The Witcher series, yes, Ciri is in it but she’s supposed to be a tween or in her early teens. They are also looking for someone in their 20s willing to do nudity to play Felicia. There are also a couple of other guest starring roles that also require nudity. Also hearing that Henry Cavill has officially been cast as Geralt so we should get confirmation on Yennefer and other roles when that is announced.
Due to demand, we skimmed through the script of A Simple Favor to see what the nudity could be. Anna Kendrick has two sex scenes in the script. There is also a nude painting of Blake Lively that seems to be pretty prominent in the film. Eventually they flash back to when Blake was posing for the painting.
A Simple Favor is rated R for sexual content and language throughout, some graphic nude images, drug use and violence and will be in theaters September 14.
The Affair just ended its latest season on Sunday with a longtime castmember leaving the show. Hearing that for the next and final season, there will be a new story told from the viewpoint of a lesbian in her twenties. And no, it doesn’t involve Julia Goldani Telles or Emily Browning‘s characters although they’re supposed to be back next season too.
Rumor around town is relative newcomer Anya Chalotra may have been cast as Yennefer in the Netflix The Witcher series. We’re unsure if the role requires nudity but there will be nudity on the show as other casting notices mention it.
