“Vincent-N-Roxxy” is a new crime-thriller film starring Emile Hirsch, Zoë Kravitz, Zoey Deutch. The film made its big premiere at the annual Tribeca Film Festival last night. The plot revolves around a “small town loner and a rebellious punk rocker [who] unexpectedly fall in love as they are forced on the run and soon discover violence follows them everywhere.” Apparently the big kicker with this film is its shocking ending. It was so shocking that actress Zoe Kravitz claims it was one of the main reasons why she wanted to star in the film. Here’s a snippet from an interview with Hollywood Reporter in which she discusses the film:

THR: What made you want to get involved with this movie?

Zoe: I love that [my role] was written for a brown girl but [the movie] wasn’t about an interracial couple. And then, of course, like the last eight pages, I was so confused and so shocked. It does have a really interesting twist to the story. It’s nice to be surprised. After so many years of storytelling it starts to get repetitive. So when something does really shock you, it’s refreshing to read.

THR: What was it like seeing those surprising events unfold onscreen instead of just reading them?

Zoe: I’ve seen a rough cut [of the film]. It’s very intense. It definitely looks like what it felt like to shoot it. It’s so dramatic and so out there that it could be viewed as too much but I feel like because we shot the end after we shot everything else, we really got the time to understand these characters and what they meant to each other and what they’ve gone through and how heartbreaking the end really is. I think by the time we shot that, we were able to do it in a grounded way because we were very clear on what was happening and what had happened. [Read more…]
