Kate Hudson is part of the new sci-fi thriller, Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon. The creator, Ana Lily Amirpour takes the viewers through the streets of New Orleans during a full moon while anything can happen.
Kate Hudson (Almost Famous) and Jun Jong Seo (Burning) star in this mind-bending film from visionary director Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home At Night). In this wild and fantastical journey through the streets of New Orleans, a mental patient with supernatural powers meets a struggling single mom, and the pair embark on a bizarre crime spree, until a detective (Craig Robinson, “This Is The End”) threatens to put a stop to their hedonistic spree.
The charismatic actress, Kate Hudson is in some of today’s favorite Rom-Coms like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, You, Me and Dupree, My Best Friend’s Girl, and Bride Wars to name a few. In 2001 she was nominated by the Academy Awards for Best Actress Supporting Actress in Cameron Crowe’s, Almost Famous. Last year she received recognition for her performance in Sia’s musical Music and one of them came from the Golden Globes for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Currently she can be heard on the podcast, Siblings Revelry co hosted with her brother, Oliver Hudson.
The creator of Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon gained her experience by making several short films. In 2014 she used one of them, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night to make her feature-film debut as writer and director. A film that granted her awards and nominations in film festivals around the world. The Bad Batch was her second feature film with Jason Momoa and Keanue Reeves. Later this year her work as a director will be seen in the Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities series.
Hours before the Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon Los Angeles premiere I was connected with Kate Hudson and Ana Lily Amirpour. Hudson discussed her favorite scenes, the cat fight and the choreography involved. While Amirpour spoke about the antagonist that she has been passing on in all her films. For some fun and relating to the film, I asked them what their cookie fortune would say today.
