Yesterday, Toni Collette and Ari Aster have gathered for what looks like A24’s Oscar campaign for “Hereditary”, as the actress and director have attended a Q&A for the film hosted by Deadline Contenders. “I think every actor longs for a chance to ‘go for it’ and when I read this script it was undeniable,” Collette said. “It was such an opportunity for me to kind of traverse so many different areas…it’s the story of an awakening in this woman. People usually have an awakening or an epiphany about their lives and it means they have some understanding and it gives them a little more control in their lives. I think the true horror of this story is that once she does realize what the truth of her life has been there’s no hope, no way out.” Hereditary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and earned strong reviews, especially for Collette’s work. Writer-director Ari Aster said the horror genre helped the film. “One thing that I love about genre storytelling,” Aster said, “is that you can take thematic material that might be difficult for people to digest…and you can filter it through this other thing that takes what might be a deterrent to people seeing the movie and suddenly render it a virtue.” You can read more over at Deadline. Many many thanks to Mouza for the heads-up!

Earlier today, Toni Collette has attended a photocall for BBC1’s upcoming miniseries “Wanderlust”. She was accompanied by co-star Stephen Mackintosh, director Luke Snellin and writer Nick Payne. Fingers crossed for a full trailer soon! Wanderlust follows Joy Richards (Toni) a therapist trying to find a way to keep her spark with her husband alive after a cycling accident causes them to reassess their relationship. As we meet her family, friends, neighbours and clients, remarkable yet relatable stories of love, lust and forbidden desire emerge. “I am honoured and thrilled to work with Nick Payne’s wonderful words on Wanderlust,” Toni said in a statement. “It is an authentic and revolutionary story about relationships, sex, love and all the things we really care about. I could not be more excited.”The series is set to premiere in the UK on BBC One and globally outside of the UK on Netflix!

On June 22, the National Board of Review hosted a screening of “Hereditary” with a Q&A afterwards. Unfortunately there’s no video available, but a picture has been posted along with some quotes by Ari Aster and Toni Collette. Below is a great quote by Toni about the working experience with Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne and Ann Dowd. See the full article here:

How was it like working with such a great supporting cast? TC: In terms of Ari’s specificity, he really did hand pick every actor as well as key crew member. Ann Dowd is an angel. She’s such a pleasure to work with. She’s so open, so present, and she allows moments to kind of erupt on their own. I hadn’t seen The Handmaid’s Tale before working with her and I’m very glad because it would’ve made me feel slightly different. Gabriel Byrne, total dreamboat. He’s grounded, so funny, so generous. And he was my pal. We would sit on the stage and know exactly what we were thinking and it was really great to share this with him. Millie Shapiro was fourteen. This was her very first film. She’s done a couple of shows on Broadway. We had a shared rehearsal together, and she was just so astute. She loves horror films. She was just very conscious of her options in how to portray certain things. She really, really created something quite amazing. Alex, who plays Peter, just loves turning itself inside out. He’s incredible in the movie and I think when I was that age, I think I liked to kind of go there as well, but I’m too old for that. It was something to behold. I think we all felt really touched that we were chosen to work with this material because it felt original. We all got to really steep ourselves, saturate ourselves in something that deeply special we were making. It was bloody hard. It was exhausting. It was a beautiful challenge and really satisfying.

While all the attention lies on tomorrow’s theatrical release of “Hereditary”, one of Toni’s other films – which will be released on the same day – is quietly flying under the radar. Yesterday, Toni joined co-star Nick Offerman at the New York premiere of “Hearts Beat Loud”. In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. Toni plays a supporting role as the landlord / love interest to Offerman’s character. Make sure to watch it if “Hereditary” will scare you too much – or watch it right afterwards :-) Pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery.
