Rosamund Pike

Summer and Smoke

18 Oct, 2006

rosamund-pike-summer-smokePike plays Alma Winemiller in the adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play. In 1916 in the Deep South, Alma falls in love with the son of her neighbour. Co-starring Chris Carmack.

All five of the central characters have been catastrophically let down by their parents, and are looking for ways to patch up that void. Lacking in the most part a language of love, they seek to replace this with sex. All, that is, apart from my character, Alma. All her life she has been desperately in love with the son of the local doctor, and she believes that she craves his mind, unable to acknowledge that what she is really feeling is lust.
