Eva Green stars in twisted romantic thriller, 'Cracks'
Eva Green's twisted romantic thriller "Cracks" has come out in a limited release on March 18, after touring the film festivals.
In the film, Green, 30, plays Miss G, a glamorous and beloved swim teacher at a 1930s boarding school who regales her students with exotic tales, but in reality, she has never left the school. When a student arrives from Spain and posesses all the qualities Miss G plays at, she becomes obsessed with the girl and the other students are afraid to lose their favorite teacher.
Green is perhaps best known for her role as a Bond girl in "Casino Royale," where she brought Daniel Craig to tears.
The French actress has a habit of portraying very complex characters, in her first role in Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Dreamers," the actress played a Parisian who had an incestuous relationship with her twin brother, to whom she was formerly conjoined. The movie, which also starred Michael Pitt as an American exchange student who falls in love with the twins, garnered attention for its nudity and sexual content which has caused the actress to worry about nudity in her roles.
"I was very disturbed when 'The Dreamers' came out because of course I take off my clothes, but I think there's more to it," Green told Black Book magazine. It's a real story, it's not porn... I mean, it's a love story, it's something else. Now when I have to do a nude scene, I always think twice about it, I'm very self-conscious."
Green stars in the Starz series "Camelot" as the sorceress Morgan le Fay and will also play a witch in Tim Burton's horror comedy, "Dark Shadows," which is based on a 1960s vampire soap opera and will also star Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter.
"I'm not allowed to say too much about it," Green told Black Book. "It's extremely well written, very, very funny, in a Tim Burton way. It's very focused on the actors, and the characters are really rich. My character is a full-on witch and she's completely obsessed with Johnny Depp's character, and she'll do anything to get him. "
