According to A24’s logline, Bodies Bodies Bodies follows, “A group of seven young friends have a house party at a remote mansion during a hurricane, hosted by childhood best friends Sophie, who is recently sober, and David, who is excessively wealthy. Bee is working-class girlfriend of Sophie, and new to their group of friends; she is naive to the kind of party they host and eats a large amount of cake without realizing it is cannabis edible. One of the guests, Jordan, also warns Bee that Sophie is not who she seems. Sophie, having been in rehab, has not spoken to the others in the group for some time, and social dynamics are awkward between them. The group decides to play party games, choosing “bodies bodies bodies”, a murder in the dark-style game. The game goes poorly and fractures the friendships even more, with David arguing with everyone from his girlfriend Emma to another outsider in the group, the much-older Greg, who is vacuous Alice’s new boyfriend. They end the game but soon find a real murder has taken place, and have to again search for the murderer among them.”
Directed by Halina Reijn, Starring Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott, Lee Pace, and Pete Davidson. Speaking to Comingsoon, Halina discuss about her experience in acting help inform your directorial style on Bodies Bodies Bodies. Halina told “I think what I really take with me, having been an actor myself, is that even though it looks so fun when you watch a great film or great play, acting is super embarrassing and it’s so fucking scary. Especially [since] these people don’t really know each other and now they have to play that they’re friends or that they’re lovers or they’re gonna have sex or whatever. The main thing for me is to make them feel incredibly safe, but also make them feel like I see them, I hear them — not only because I want them to feel safe, but also because it’s better for the film to really ask them, what do you think? Where would you want to be? What do you want to do?”
“And so they feel responsible for the project as much as I do, and that will make them feel better and more in charge of their own destiny within this project. So that is very important to me, but also really creating circumstances in which they can actually feel a scene. I think with film, directors often lose themselves in the technique of it all and they just stop and go. So as an actor, you get really short moments where you can act and then it’s like, stop! Okay, next? Okay, another take. So what I do is I take really long takes.”
