Wonderland.

Odessa Young
"By the time we were shooting it I
was like, 'Oh, I get it. This isn't
about my body, this is not about
my nipples or my butt, it's about
the entirety of an image. Seeing
somebody obviously, literally
naked but also very symbolically
and metaphorically naked in a
location that she's never been
allowed...This is barely even about
Jane. It's just about a dynamic
that needs to be visually
represented."

Odessa Young is making waves. In 
Mothering Sunday, in which Odessa
plays Jane, a maid living in post-World
War I England entangled in a secret
love affair with an affluent man,
there are many scenes with little to
no dialogue. Still, Young and the
rest of the cast captivate by
embracing the film’s quietness,
relying on physicality and, at times,
pure emotional tension to tell the
story. Mothering Sunday was this
years Cannes Film Festival's breakout
film, and Odessa Young was the film's
undeniable breakout star.

Covering our Autumn 2021 issue, Young
talks navigating the male gaze on
and off-screen, unwanted DMs and
upcoming true crime series The Staircase.
