‘Malcolm & Marie’ director reveals origins of buzzy film

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — The global pandemic was not about to stop filmmaker Sam Levinson without a fight, literally. The creator of HBO’s “Euphoria” found his hit series shuttered so he pivoted to writing and directing “Malcolm & Marie,” a film about an epic lovers’ quarrel starring John David Washington and Zendaya. Set in a luxury California beach house, Washington’s Malcolm, an up-and-coming director, and Zendaya’s Marie, an out-of-work actress, have returned after a party where his film has premiered to rapturous applause. But he forgot to thank Marie and that leads to an outpouring of simmering grievances. “Malcolm & Marie” debuts on Netflix on Friday.last_img
