Chloe Sevigny Can’t ‘Wait’ for Fake True Love
To many (including me) Chloe Sevigny is the unofficial indie/alt queen. Though she’s appeared in numerous big name TV shows, and mainstream movies, she’s also got her hands in music and fashion. All the while, she receives adoration and idolatry and for good reason – she’s down-to-earth, easy-going, and genuine. That’s why it’s so surprising to me and to Senior Editor Tony Layser why she’s never really found true love on-screen. What’s not to love?
She’s won awards for her roles in Big Love and Boys Don’t Cry and has given the oh-so-beautiful-and-talented bird to boundaries and lines set forth by her predecessors. It’s easy to see why Fred and Carrie fought over her on Portlandia. But, much like that character, Chloe is a free spirit whose casual, carefree nature might be disarming to some, alarming to others. In this interview for our Profound Minutiae series, Chloe talks about her movie, The Wait, which screened at SXSW, and tries not to laugh at Tony’s seriously deep quandaries.
The Wait stars Chloe and indie/alt queen runner-up/second-in-command Jena Malone. It’s written and directed by M Blash (no relation to Night Shyamalan) whose previous feature, Lying, also starred Chloe and Jena, and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Wait from SXSW.com:
“An enigmatic phone call from a psychic, catapults a family into a state of suspended belief while waiting for their recently deceased mother to be resurrected. One sister believes the claim, and the other staunchly opposes it until she encounters a chance at love giving her hope that anything, even resurrection, is possible. A discordant struggle between sisters plays out in a world where the virtual and real converge.”
Ooooooooooooooo. No word yet on how Chloe will be abused in this one, but I’m starting to think she likes it.
