Mexico City /
A comet with a diameter of five to seven kilometers is approaching at full speed heading directly to Earth; two astronomers Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) and PhD student Kate Dipasky (Jennifer Lawrence), they discover that the planet’s clocks count unless someone does something.
The story is a real-time allegory, as its director and writer put it, about the destruction of our planet that we seem to ignore as easily as a TV station we don’t want to see. However, through comedy, and with the performance Meryl Streep as President of the United StatesOne doesn’t realize anything by the way, this Armageddon-style tragedy turns into something else entirely. The first, that it is not far from our reality. m 2 speak with Streep and DiCaprio about it.
There’s a great old saying “I’d rather laugh than cry” and I don’t think there’s a movie that makes more sense than this. Do you agree, Meryl?
miss. (laughs) Yeah, but since I’m playing a very selfish and very narcissistic person in this movie, I didn’t have to be there to see how it would develop in all other respects. When I saw the movie I was devastated. I wasn’t ready for how emotional it was in the end. I was ready to laugh, the laughs faded and I couldn’t believe how beautifully adjusted, Adam did such a brutal thing; He has the most incredible variety of imagination, but the ending landed on me. He made me look at myself and see my life and I said to myself: You’re not doing enough Meryl, not for this house, not for global warming. And she kindled a fire in myself and my children when they saw her. I hope the same will happen to other people.
LD. Merrill doesn’t give herself enough credit, but she’s been talking about climate change and global warming since 1988.
It was more than obvious either way. I am exhausted from seeing and hearing people act as if science is political. Leo, your character has to live that all the time. How do you see that?
LD. That’s what’s cool, especially after COVID hit us and the denial of that science. When Adam made this Planet Crisis movie, I could really relate to Randall in a lot of ways, because in a way he’s trying to play in a world where he has to be cutting edge and interesting, but what he has on his side is the data, and oftentimes not the data A clickbait bait or something people want to hear. So it sums up what a lot of people are saying, a lot of scientists I know who are wondering: How can I explain the urgency of this to the rest of the world? How do I make it sexy for lack of a better word? How do I get people to interact and listen? And I fell in love with the way this guy was and the transition he’s going through with management, while Jane (Lawrence)’s character, much like Greta Thomberg, is very sharp. We can see the despair of the scientific community in not taking these issues seriously.
I saw something of Dr. Fauci in your character, Leo. In that case Meryl, I’m afraid to see who we reflect in your character, can you say a certain name?
miss. (laughs) No, because this character will never exist. There would never be a figure in the United States who was a woman who was allowed to have many friends and given them a job on the Supreme Court. This will never happen again. We may have a boss one day, but they’ll never let her have any of the licenses others have. This is unimaginable, but she is also a well-known personality: selfishness, lack of interest in her character, how she makes decisions, it all has to do with how it affects her. How does it help her and how does it make her richer, just what gives her more power. Everything else does not concern her. That worry, that a guilty come straight at us… Someone else will take charge. Someone from Yale, Princeton, or MIT. I can’t care about that, I have dates and things to do.
The multi-star cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Ariana Grande, Timothée Chamlet, Chris Evans, and Jonah Hill, among many other actors..
It’s the Netflix production to come flow December 24Although it was already available in some cinemas that wanted to show it.
