American actor John Malkovic returned to London's West End after nearly 30 years of absence, taking on the challenge of acting as a shameful Hollywood movie in a work partly inspired by Harvey Weinstein's scandal.
Bitter play of wheat from Pulitzer's playwright and guru David Mamet, "bad behavior" in various industries, not just entertainment, says Malkovich, 65, in an interview before the premiere.
Bitter Wheat mentions the story of Barney Fine, a powerful and arrogant producer who has made his way to success in Hollywood. Fain lures a young actor in her room for a working meeting. It turns out, however, that the producer wants sex services.
Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment by more than 70 women. The poor producer stubbornly denies the accusations that inspired the movement. I also remember the organization.
Although it affects a difficult subject, "Bitter Wheat" does not lack windy moments.
