The cast of Last night in Soho!!
The story of Last Night in Soho centers on Eloise “Ellie” Turner (Thomasin McKenzie), a young woman passionate about fashion design.
For some reason, she can travel back to the 1960s and meet her idol, Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy), a stunning woman who wants to be a singer.
But 1960s London is not as it seems, and mysterious events occur as time appears to disintegrate. In addition to Rita Tushingham and Diana Rigg from Game of Thrones, the movie includes Matt Smith from Doctor Who, Michael Ajao from Attack the Block, Synnve Karlsen from Clique, and Terence Stamp from Superman (A Taste of Honey).
Some gossip and controversies around Last Night in Soho!!
McKenzie recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly about his experience working with director Edgar Wright on the set of our new movie, “The Last night in Soho.”
In the course of his conversation, McKenzie described Wright as a true auteur and said, “For The Last Night in Soho, he prepared a list of 50 horror and psychological thriller movies from the 1950s, including “Don’t Look Now,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” and “Repulsion.” He encouraged us to watch all of them to better understand the tone, the visuals, and the psychological thriller he was trying to achieve.”
The level of detail he put into the storyboards was impressive. He had storyboards for every shot in the entire movie. Each shot had a storyboard, and once it was complete, it went into a box with the other finished shots. He knew what he wanted and was meticulous in his planning.
We think that’s why the movie turned out so well. Wright had a clear vision, and he executed it flawlessly.
Eloise’s view of the mysteries of Sandie!!
Through Last Night In Soho, we witness the mystery surrounding Sandie’s life develop from a personal perspective.
We meet a young woman eager to become a singing star after Eloise travels back to the mid-1960s. After becoming friends with Jack (Matt Smith), a manager who eventually becomes a pimp, Sandie’s life blurs into an unending series of dates with guys who intend to help her develop her career.
Ellie and Ms. Collins engage in one last, bizarre altercation after the central mystery of Last Night In Soho is solved. Ellie continues to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer after learning that her landlady had perished in the flames of the burning apartment. Along the way, she continues to glimpse Sandie’s ghost, who inspires her.
The film Last night in Soho was thoroughly enjoyable and, overall, very well made.
