Even as these supporting roles earned her critical acclaim and awards, Kirby was in no hurry to find her first onscreen lead role, she said. She played a number of complex characters on stage: women like Roselind, the intelligent heroine of Shakespeare’s “As you like. “She was out for an onscreen lead, in which she could feel some of Rosalind’s” magic “, she said, which” performs like a flight when you step on stage. “
“I could never get those roles onscreen,” she said. So he waited, as an opportunity to use and know his small parts, asking Anthony Hopkins about his craft when they worked together on the British TV drama “The Dresser” and saw that the Rachel McAdams film How long were you starting for ” he said.
It is fitting, given Kirby’s dramatic backdrop, that “Pieces of a Woman” began life as a play written by Kata Weber, Mundruzzo’s partner, who lost a child to a couple Drew on his experience. The play “Pieces of a Woman”, which is set in Poland, contains only two scenes: the birth, and an explosive dinner with Martha’s family that takes place about halfway through the film adaptation. Its 2018 premiere, directed by Mundruku at the TR Warzwa Theater in Warsaw, was a hit, and production is Still on the company’s repertoire.
Five years before Mundruko turned 40, he started a large audience for his work, he said, so he stopped working in German, Hungarian and Polish; “Pieces of a Woman” is her first English-language film. To adopt the play for the big screen, Mundruzzo set it in Boston, he said, because he felt the city’s Irish Catholic culture was reflective Poland’s conservative social landscape.
A pregnancy loss is rarely seen in onscreen entertainment. Mundruzzo said he hoped seeing Martha’s experiences would “encourage people to be brave enough to give their answers to any harm”, he said.
