Dakota Fanning’s new movie Now is Good premieres in Europe at London’s Curzon cinema in Mayfair. Joel Flynn reports.
Imagine you have just months to live. What would you do? That’s the question at the heart of Dakota Fanning’s new movie, Now is Good.
The film is about a 17-year-old girl diagnosed with lukaemia, who makes her own list after declining treatment.
Speaking at the European premiere in London’s Mayfair, Fanning said it was a difficult but rewarding role.
(SOUNDBITE) Actress, Dakota Fanning, saying (English): “She’s trying to make the most of what’s left and yeah she kind of makes this, thinks of things she wants to do, but at the same time through the experience realises that some things become important and some things don’t matter anymore, and coming to terms with everything and so yeah it was definitely a very complex character but it’s been one of the most fun times I have ever had making a film.”
Fanning’s love interest in the film is played by Jeremy Irvine. Irvine was plucked from obscurity by Steven Spielberg for War Horse the movie. He says Now is Good offers laughs, despite its sombre subject.
(SOUNDBITE) Actor, Jeremy Irvine, saying (English): “She uses it as an excuse to do all the things she wanted to do. So she goes crazy and does all this stuff and gets herself in these situations which are actually very funny and I think that’s why I chose the movie, you know, yeah.”
Now Is Good is released in cinemas in the United Kingdom on September 19.
