“[Elizabeth] Moss’ oscillating, energy-devouring performance and the real-time composition of Perry's scenes make it almost impossible to look away.” — Vulture
“Perry’s kinetic style and Moss’ explosive performance transform [the film] into something that feels more authentic than actual history.” — Consequence of Sound
About HER SMELL:
Becky Something is a ’90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy, all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted band mates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success. Also starring Cara Delevingne, Dan Stevens, Eric Stolz, Dylan Gelula, and Virginia Madsen.
Anchored by a towering, unflinching performance from Golden Globe and Emmy winner Moss, and supported by a stellar ensemble cast, HER SMELL examines the grit, grace and gravitas of an unforgettable fictional rock star crashing down to earth into the harsh realities of mid-life. With his incendiary and deeply humane sixth feature, writer-director Alex Ross Perry (LISTEN UP PHILIP, GOLDEN EXITS) pumps up the volume and shines a light on the terrifying moment when superstardom wanes —and quiet becomes the new loud.
