Non ci sarà solo Cate Blanchett nel nuovo film di James Gray (Ad Altra, Civiltà perduta, I padroni della notte, Two Lovers).
Secondo quanto riferito da Deadline, il cast di Armageddon Time si è fatto molto, molto ricco: Robert De Niro, Oscar Isaac, Donald Sutherland e Anne Hathaway saranno i protagonisti di questa storia, ambientata negli anni ’80 reaganiani, all’interno di una high school privata, che lo stesso Donald Trump aveva frequentato.
Per Gray si tratta di ricordi personali: “The private school, yes Donald Trump went there and Fred Trump was on the board of trustees. It’s symbolic about what the school represented at the time, entrenched in this white protestant ethic. I found it very foreign to me, a product of the public school system in New York City of the ‘70s. It’s about that transition and how it reflects on what the American society was and sadly still is. How we are separated along the lines of class and ethnicity. The film is really about that, my transition in school from one to the other”.
