Casting Notice

FRANCE: actress, 20-25, for challenging short [L,P]

We are casting for the film, We Need to Talk.

This short film chronicles the last hours of a couple engaged in a domestic dispute. Ombèline, a young woman, stabs her companion during their lovemaking and decides before he dies to sort out their problems.

We are looking to cast an actress for the role of Ombèline. The film is almost entirely about this character and we need a passionate and determined actress to fill this role.

  • female
  • 20-25
  • must have an excellent command of English
  • beautiful and dangerous; strongly inspired the character played by Sissy Spacek in Badlands and the character of May played by Angela Bettis in the film of the same name
  • can be as touching and sensual as she is violent and cruel

The film is based on a sexually charged atmosphere and violence of the cinema of Harmony Korine or Lars Von Trier.

Note that there is nudity involved in the film and also (simulated) sexual scenes.

The shooting will take place in Lyon for 3 of 4 days and will be paid.

Thank you.
