“Wherever your sympathies lie, I think the film will make you question your views, and that’s really interesting,” she added.
Her interest in the project grew as it told the story through various perspectives. “What I really loved about the script is that it is told from three different points of view; it’s told from the point of view of the Women’s Libbers, it’s told from the point of view of Bob Hope – the host of that year’s Miss World – and it’s told from the point of view of the Miss World contestants,” said the actor.
The film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley, Keeley Hawes, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville and Greg Kinnear. The Philippa Lowthorpe directorial will be released on January 22 in India by PVR Pictures.
