The story is beautiful, worthy of a Hollywood fairy tale. Young talented actress noticed in particular in “Miss Potter” and “Sing Street”, Lucy Boynton met a certain Rami Malek on the set of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ . He played Freddie Mercury, she, Mary Austin, his long-time companion … Since then, they have not left each other and the comedian who won an Oscar for his performance of the glam rock superstar was in the front row on Friday evening , during the New Hollywood award ceremony at the 48th Deauville American Film Festival. Very moved at the time of receiving her reward, Lucy Boynton thanked her relatives, the casting director who spotted her when she was only 11 years old. “I love my job beyond words,” she explained.
The 48th Deauville American Film Festival opened on Friday evening with the preview screening of “Call Jane” by Phyllis Nagy, with Elizabeth Banks and Sigourney Weaver, a portrait of an American housewife who emancipates herself from her conservative social background after having an abortion. A somewhat wise film that gives pride of place to sorority, “Call Jane” has taken on a certain political meaning in the United States since the repeal of the Roe v. Wade of 1973 which authorized abortion nationwide.
