Actress Helena Bonham Carter says it is not easy to find a film with one female lead, and that is one of the reasons she was attracted towards Oceans 8.
“I like to do things that I havent done before, and Id never done a heist film. My castmates were another attraction because theyre so extraordinary,” Bonham Carter said in a statement to IANS. “Its not easy to find a film with one female lead, let alone eight, so its about time we had this kind of ensemble,” she added.
A sequel to Steven Soderberghs Oceans trilogy, Oceans 8 stars Sandra Bullock as ringleader Debbie Ocean, the sister of George Clooneys character Danny. After getting out of jail, she recruits seven women – Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and Bonham Carter to help her pull off a jewellery heist at the annual Met Gala in New York.
Her character Rose is a fashion designer. The actress says she got “wonderful fashion” lessons with the film. “That education I received allowed me see the world from their point of view. It was a lot of fun.”
Oceans 8 is said to be a reinvention of the popular franchise that has been dominated by men both behind and front of the camera. The movie did remarkably well at the US box office and is set to release in India on June 22.
Helena Bonham Carter is also gearing up for her role on The Crown as Princess Margaret. The role was played by Vanessa Kirby in the first two installments of the series, who also received a BAFTA for it.
