Q&A: Actress Kika Magalhaes talks ‘The Eyes of My Mother’
Nicolas Pesce’s The Eyes of My Mother is one of the most visually stunning and unsettling films in recent memory (review). A lot of that deep, disturbing sense of dread comes from actress Kika Magalhaes’ performance as Francisca, a character simultaneously as sweet as she is unhinged. Her performance is all the more impressive considering this is her first major feature role. Just ahead of the film’s theatrical release, we chatted with the effervescent Kika about her character, how she got involved, and what her experience was like on set.
The Eyes of My Mother will open in theaters and VOD on Friday, December 2, 2016. You can also read our earlier interview with writer/director Nicolas Pesce here.
