Netflix – Making of Malcolm & Marie
If you guys are anything like us, Netflix has been a savior of sorts during this dreaded pandemic. From binge-watching Tiger King to dreaming of weddings and wiping away tears while watching, “Say I Do”, there is one thing that is for sure – Netflix knows how to entertain. And in 2021, it looks like they are doing it again by releasing an intimate, romantic, and steamy black and white film titled Malcolm & Marie. This film features Emmy-winning Zendaya (one of our favorite actresses) and Golden Globe nominee John David Washington, and incredibly it’s already sparking Oscar Buzz as well as whispers of an upcoming nomination for the powerhouse actress, Zendaya. Yaass! We’re are so excited!
So, What’s All The Buzz Around Netflix’s Malcolm & Marie?
For starters, when was the last time that a steaming and romantic film was shot in black and white? But that’s not the only thing creating buzz and excitement about this film. The film was secretly shot during the beginning of the pandemic while the rest of Hollywood was shutdown. The creator Sam Levinson and Zendaya bounced ideas off each other, and before long, he had ten full pages of a first draft.
The black and white film tells a tale of a domestic squabble that happens after the couple returns home from film director Malcolm’s latest film premiere. While presenting his speech, Malcolm forgot to thank his wife, which led to a turbulent discussion about love and art. The following story dealt with Malcolm & Marie as a stormy night of arguments, revelations, and passion evolved. But as the night went on, the couple found themselves mining profound truths about identity, love, and artistry.
Relationships can be complicated at times, and stay home orders during this pandemic have proven to be really tough for many couples. We’re excited about this movie as it not only has incredible performances and visuals, but it reminds us all that arguments can arise, but it’s how you deal with them that matters. Communication and respect between lovers are essential to get through them and come out on the other side madly in love.
Malcolm & Marie will premier on Netflix on February 5, 2021.
