So what did Zoe Saldana bring to the role of Rosemary in last night’s debut miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby”? Well, for starters, and obviously, she brought the flavor, including an interracial marriage. Yes, there was some color to Rosemary last night, along with the beautiful language of the French-just enough goes a long way:)
I absolutely loved the original movie with Mia Farrow who played the naive Rosemary. Now, we have Zoe Saldana who puts her spin on just how far she wants the character to play ‘Ro’ all wide-eyed and innocent when stuff hits the fan and let’s face it, there aren’t too many people who’s going to stick around for the devil! 🙂
It’s a slippery slope let me tell you for the actress and producer to keep it real for the people. Too much of a character being in a state of denial can kill a great movie. When the priest told her to leave, Rosemary should have at least started packing:)
I like that the movie takes on a fresh perspective, but I would prefer to have seen Rosemary (2014) at least try to believe she was in danger right from the first encounter with those creepy Paris rich folks and how about that blue-eyes devil guy she kept seeing and refused to believe was there? I know the movie is going to pick up the pace in the last installment on Thursday because right now, I know what this gurl would have done in Rosemary’s position; she certainly wouldn’t be drinking that nasty ass “fertility” soup. What?!
Mia Farrow was a timid Rosemary in the 60s version and I was a kid so everything was scary. Zoe Saldana is a modern woman who looks like she can’t be fooled in the movie, and she didn’t flip the script on that angle.I think I liked her performance thus far, in a few of her other movies, better… Take a trip with me down Zoe Saldana ‘s Lane:
