Samantha Morton plays a Marilyn Monroe impersonator in Harmony Korine’s wonderful Mister Lonely.
This is from an interview I had with the director and screenwriter Harmony Korine:
What is the source of Mister Lonely?
Early on I had started thinking of this idea of nuns jumping out of airplanes, nuns riding bicycles in the clouds and doing tricks in the sky. But that was pretty much it; that was the extent of it. I didn’t have a story or any kind of narrative. And I was working on a script before then, right before my houses burned down. It was a script about a pig named Trotsky and this kid who invented a special kind of adhesive that he would put on to ride outside of these walls. He would ride around and walk through the swampland in Florida and firebomb houses. A lot of that script burned down with my house.
