Screen Tirade chats with Oona Chaplin almost working with co-star Rámon Rodríguez, Rachel and Vivian's complex family energetic, and the eagerly behind Lilith's activities.
Oona Chaplin Talks Lullaby
Screen Tirade: What made you need to urge included with Lullaby?
Oona Chaplin: It was really diving into a mother's love and going right there and seeing "how does that feel?" for me. Then, given the way that the world twists and turns and the way that everything was unfolding, it also became about how sometimes what we consider to be the easy choice, the thing that seems will fix the problems that we have, actually opens the freakin' floodgates for a whole gaggle of new problems that we could never foresee. And then we're challenged, and then we have to understand, and then we have to go through the portal and come back and go, "Okay, that was not the way." It became about a bunch of different things. It's a really interesting metaphor for life, I think.
When I chatted together with your chief, he said simply and the performing artist who plays John didn't get to spend much time together some time recently you started filming. How was bouncing into the part of this hitched couple?
Oona Chaplin: It was great. I remember one conversation that we had on Zoom. We were talking about our relationships. He's in a relationship, I'm in a relationship—we were talking about what relationships are like to understand what Rachel and John's relationship would be like. It was an instant, "Oh, we think about things in a very similar way. We're going to be just fine." It was a chemistry thing—we instantly got along great. You're family, we can talk about anything. We can go and be really brave and be really silly and go, go, go. It's all good. It was a really well-cast film, I think, in that way. It felt very natural.
What qualities does Rachel have that you just delighted in bringing out within the film?
Oona Chaplin: When she sees something that scares her a little bit, her first response isn't to back off. Her first response is to try and figure it out. And that to me is something that I admire. I feel like it was that drive, that you will go to all lengths, to every length, to go and take care of your family. That for me is something that we need to see more of in stories.
Talking of family, I would adore to listen your take on the relationship between Rachel and her sister since it's a really complex one.
Oona Chaplin: Yeah, it is. Someone asked me the same question, and it's funny because I haven't really given it that much thought because it was so natural. It feels like there's a lot of unspokenness. There's always a balancing act. There's always one sibling that goes one particular direction and another sibling that goes another particular direction. I see it with my godchildren. The power dynamics that are at play are so twisted, and they're like three and five, and you're like, "Whoa, this is crazy! What are we doing?" You can just chill, and they'll work it out later, but it's amazing how we bring up all these things in one another. I think the one thing they have in common is that they'll do anything for their son and that's where they really meet.
You can't continuously tell what's CGI and what's really made for set. What went into shooting those scenes within the reflect world?
Oona Chaplin: None of it was CGI. We had very, very little CGI in the film, which is what I love about working with John because it was right there. Either you had to see it or you had to move the entire set so that you could see it. It's amazing to work like that. With what's available with computers, we can just cut so many corners. There were no corners cut in. The other side of the mirror was all right there. So props to everybody on the design team for that and to John for having that kind of conviction. But yeah, it was very weird. The weirdness was abundant.
Obviously exterior of the truth that she needs to require her child, how do you think Rachel felt around Lilith? She incorporates a complex story as well, so do you think Rachel related to that in any way? Or she fair needed to require her child and go?
Oona Chaplin: I feel like Rachel just wanted her child and she just wanted to go. I think that in that kind of situation, there's very little compassion and empathy that can be there in the moment. Maybe looking back, she'll be able to have more understanding for Lilith, the demon goddess. What there is, though, is there is an enchantment that happens because Lilith is extremely beautiful. So there is a moment of enchantment where she kind of falls for her. But then snaps out of it and is like, "Give me back my son, b*tch!"
What was the foremost challenging portion around making a film like this?
Oona Chaplin: The most challenging is to imagine what would happen if that were to happen to our own children. You make a film like that, and I haven't seen it because I can't watch it, I won't watch it for many years, I don't think, but it's curious to me if it came through [because] if somebody loses a child, it is so devastating. It is so devastating. It's so horrible to even think about that happening. That, for me, was the most challenging part, for sure.
What was the finest portion approximately shooting? Was there a particular day on set you delighted in?
Oona Chaplin: I can't speak highly enough about Rámon. Rámon is just such a gem of a human being. He's funny, he's creative...we could go into the script and go off on many, many tangents, and it was a really fun and creative experience to work with him. Every day working with Rámon was a total gift.
