From TIFF 2022; A Few Minutes With David Corenswet As We Talk About ‘Pearl’

It’s hard to believe that things could get creepier….but there is it is….

On this episode we pull something out of our work at this year’s installment of the Toronto International Film Festival as we dive into the warped world of ‘Pearl’ which is playing in theatres now.

Before ‘X’ we travel to the early days of this saga as we join our heroine trapped on her family’s isolated farm, asPearl (Mia Goth) must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl’s ambitions, temptations, and repressions all collide.

This new chapter takes terror and bends it to some brand new places as Writer/Director Ti West takes us on a ride we’ll wish we never quite got on in the first place as it’s downright unsettling and one audiences aren’t soon to forget.

We had the unique pleasure of sitting down with actor David Corenswet who played ‘The Projectionist’ in the film and we talked about how he got the job and building a character in this truly unique and warped world.

‘Pearl’ is playing in theatres now.
