Charlize Theron – 2018 San Francisco Film Festival – A Tribute To Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron has a ferocity and focus unique to contemporary screen actors. She can utterly transform herself and transfix an audience across a variety of genres, and the subtlety in her protean performances is a tonic for these times. But her talent in that regard dates back: By 2003, Theron was already a master of her art, something never more apparent than in her role that year as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Patty Jenkins’ Monster (2003).
Since then, Theron has continued to build an impressive body of work, receiving a second Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of a miner who sues her company for sexual harassment in North Country (2005), reviving George Miller’s Mad Max franchise with her ferocious turn as the warrior Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), and mixing slaughter and spycraft in the Cold War era thrillerAtomic Blonde (2017). Join us for this special conversation with Charlize Theron, followed by a screening of Tully.
