Movies That Get It – Girl Interrupted by Billie Eilish
Not many people will agree with this, but I think that ‘Billie Eilish is not your average actress’. She was born in Los Angeles to African American parents, yet she has displayed such a strong presence on screen, that she can have anyone you put her with in her movies. She has one of the most realistic and believable portrayal of love, which is what you need in order to play the role of a real-life love. We have all seen actresses who seem very real on screen, but then their personalities are not as believable as the characters they portray.
In Girl Interrupted, Billie plays a young girl who lives in a suburb called “Wendell, California” as the film opens up with her waking up in the middle of the night, to find that her dad has been beaten to death in front of her. The girl went outside to see her dad being killed, as she was afraid that the robbers had kidnapped him and took him to Las Vegas. The movie does not do it justice though, as this was an honest portrayal of how true-to-life crime scenes really are. Then, when the girl’s father was dead, she headed straight home to find out what had happened to him.
Girl Interrupted is about a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt’s house after her mother passes away. In order to help the teenage girl get used to her new surroundings, her aunt takes her younger brother into her house. The two boys have been kidnapped by a gang of young hoodlums, and one night, the girl had to go through a pretty brutal experience.
Despite the fact that this movie was filmed at night, the viewers can see that the light can make even the darkest crime scene appear much more real. There were many instances where she and her brothers were able to see them only through the scopes of their rifles. You could tell that the robbers were in fact armed. To be able to remain calm during these traumatic experiences, you would need to have the same level of calm when you are in real life.
Aside from having realistic dialogue, a lot of people may not know that Billie Eilish also has some strong acting skills. In The Waterboy, she plays a character who is diagnosed with AIDS. She plays a person who doesn’t believe in his own diagnosis, but he must not tell anyone because he doesn’t want his family to find out he has AIDS. I would love to know what her reaction to people who don’t believe in their own diagnosis would be.
In the opening sequence of Girl Interrupted, Billie Eilish plays a character that is a social worker. Her purpose is to investigate a series of murders that occurred in the town of Wendell, California. It is during her investigation that she meets Will (Ryan Gosling) who is also a social worker.
In The Waterboy, the movie reminds us that it is more important to be realistic in our lives than to appear unrealistic. Having more than just a normal capacity for anger doesn’t mean you are better than others. Instead, being more sensitive to the situations that you encounter will make you a more effective leader.
The movie has been praised by critics and audiences, so I guess that you can expect that this will be in consideration when the time comes for Billie Eilish to be featured in a movie that will be released next year. Based on this, I am positive that the great performances from Billie Eilish are only a few years away.
