Rodrigo Prieto‘s short film Likeness has been leaked showing a very different and serious role. Likeness–In which Elle plays Mia–is a personal meditation on eating disorders created by Prieto and his daughter. Elle plays “a girl struggling with self perception, and challenges us to consider the role of society in presenting an idealized image of the female body”.

I am not aware if this is the full movie, but it is really good so be sure to watch it below!

“Just 13 during the shoot, Elle Fanning exhibits an amazing range in Sally Potter’s sharply observed tale of growing up amid the turmoil of nuclear threat and familial discord.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

“…Leaving auds to marvel at the gorgeous cinematography and scarlet-red hair of its heroine, earnestly played by Elle Fanning in a project undeserving of her talents.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

““Ginger & Rosa” seals the deal for Fanning as a serious performer who is going to have a long and valued career in cinema.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

“Over a small number of films, Elle Fanning has displayed a transcendent range that many would argue has surpassed the talents of her better-known sister Dakota.[...] Unfortunately, the rest of the Potter’s endeavor is a ponderous mess that negates the best aspects of Fanning’s performance.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

In other news Elle will be attending, among other actors such as Christian Bale, Drew Barrymore, George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Robert Downey Jr., Jodie Foster, Angelina Jolie, Emma Stone, among many others the Hollywood Film Awards Gala this year!

Elle has booked yet another role! This time it will be a movie adaptation of the novel by Kevin Henkes Olive’s Ocean; The movie will be produced by Donald Rosenfeld and written by Christina Hammonds Reed. Elle will play a teen that after discovering a peer who died recently wanted to become her friend, goes through a summer of soul searching.

The movie[...]came about because of Rosenfeld’s experience with Elle Fanning’s sister, Dakota. He produced Effie, the film that was scripted by Emma Thompson and directed by Richard Laxton, with Dakota Fanning playing the title role of Effie Gray, the teen bride of Victorian art critic John Ruskin. While on set, Rosenfeld asked her sister Elle what her favorite book was, and when she answered Olive’s Ocean, that started the process. “I haven’t worked with a more dedicated actor than Dakota and can’t wait to work with Elle,” Rosenfeld said. “There is such talent, they are young but they are old souls.” FULL ARTICLE
