The Alienist Takes place in 1896 New York, the series focuses on two men tasked (by Teddy Roosevelt!) with solving grisly serial murders, who are aided by a police secretary along the way.

The title comes from the name of those who, in that Gilded Era, studied the mentally ill, who are considered “alienated” from their own nature. Daniel Brühl stars as Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist (and alienist), who works with Luke Evans‘ newspaper illustrator John Moore. Dakota Fanning is that intrepid secretary who assists them in their quest to find this killer of young boy prostitutes, and who seems to form a romantic attachment with Moore (or rather, he becomes attached to her per the trailer).

 

The series doesn’t have a premiere date yet but is currently shooting in Hungary.



In an interview with ET, actress Dakota Fanning opens up about her latest role as a mute prostitute in the western movie, “Brimstone” and what it was like growing up in the watchful Hollywood eye.



Martin Koolhoven’s 19th century American Western Brimstone premiered Saturday at the Venice Film Festival.

Film Summary:

Dakota Fanning stars as a young mute woman, Liz, whose quiet family life is one day interrupted by the mysterious presence of a new minister in town, played by Guy Pearce. It is soon obvious that he’s out to destroy her life by destroying all those she loves, and we slowly find out why as the film goes back in time in separate acts. Also in the film, there is a mysteriously injured cowboy she decides to nurse back to health, hidden in the family’s barn. Through the film, Liz is continuously on the run but the reverend is never far behind.

The Cast: 

British actor Emilia Jones plays a young Fanning. And Game of Thrones regulars Carice van Houten, who plays her mother, and Kit Harington, who plays the mysteriously injured cowboy, also star.

From A Western To A Woman’s Story:

For the director, the appeal of the film was in changing the common Western into a woman’s story.

“As I was doing research, I found out that my whole idea of the old West was based on 50 percent of the population,” said Koolhoven. “Everyone feels like it was such a free time, that all things are possible, and you have this lawless land. But of course, that was only true for half the population.”

“Either she marries someone or she becomes a whore,” the helmer said of a woman’s options at that time. “Our whole idea of the Western myth is a completely macho idea.”

Dakota Fanning was drawn to the film for its strong female lead.

“That was one of the things that made me want to be a part of the film,” said the actress. “For any genre, it’s very rare to have a story about a woman in these times. It’s a lot of male-dominated films, so anytime I see a film that is really about the strength and the power of the lead female character, I’m always intrigued.”

She continued: “And the fact that it’s a Western, which you really never see a female take charge in a Western kind of film, that made it even more interesting, and definitely something that I had never done before, and something that I think will be different for audiences to watch.”

The experience also had another effect on Fanning, which is to explore the genre more as a whole.

“I think now that I’ve been in a Western, it makes me want to explore watching more films like that,” she said.



News: Dakota Fanning Joins Instagram
Mar, 29 Posted by Shauna

We are so excited to see that actress Dakota Fanning is finally on Instagram. She became a part of it on International Women’s Day a couple weeks back.

 



Last night, Dakota Fanning attended the star-studded Saint Laurent show at the Palladium in Los Angeles with her sister actress Elle Fanning.

Dakota and Elle were seriously shining, thanks to their major makeup. Dakota’s eyes were rimmed with black kohl liner and her lids were smudged with the prettiest icy blue metallic shade. Elle, on the other hand, gave a nod to ‘70s glam rock, smearing sparkles all around her eyes, proving that when it comes to glitter, you really can’t go overboard.

Whether they were honoring rock ’n’ roll legends, or inspired by Saint Laurent’s always shiny shows, one thing’s for sure, Dakota and Elle are what beauty dreams are made of.
