Charlize Theron on "Atomic Blonde"

by Luca Celada July 30, 2017

Set against the backdrop of Berlin at the fall of the wall, Atomic Blonde stars James MacAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones in a taut cold-war era spy thriller. But the cast is really supporting Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, a sensual and deadly MI6 operative tasked with an impossible mission. The South African beauty burns up the screen as she brawls, shoots and seduces her way through the story adapted from Antony Johnston’s graphic novel and directed by David Leitch. The HFPA’s Mario Amaya and Scott Orlin spoke to her about a film, which raises the bar for female action heroines.
