After Princess Margaret, the actress plays a mother giving birth. Her research took method acting to a new extreme

MAGAZINE SCANS > 2021 > JAN 3: THE SUNDAY TIMES ‘CULTURE’

For the first half-hour of the film Pieces of a Woman, Vanessa Kirby pretends to give birth. She breathes heavily, swears, writhes around naked in a bath. But the baby is dead. This is not a spoiler: the film is about her year-long process of mourning as her character, Martha, goes on to deal with grief and blame. The film does not mess about. Kirby will leave you shattered as she heads off to receive umpteen nominations for best actress to add to the award she won for the role at the Venice Film Festival last year.

The issue for Kirby was that she had never given birth. And unlike, say, driving a car, bringing life into the world isn’t easy to mimic if you have never done it. Portray the complex character of Princess Margaret for two series of The Crown? Simple in comparison with the agony endured in labour. Given that, Kirby did what any normal person would do and contacted the Whittington Hospital in London to ask if she could observe a birth. And one woman actually said yes.

“I walked in in my scrubs,” Kirby recalls. “We had asked permission and unbelievably she said yes. Not sure I would. Some random actress in there.” Was the woman on drugs? “No! No drugs. But she was on a trip, if you know what I mean. Anyway I sat next to her on the bed and vaguely waved. I was in awe. Her mother was there too. I hardly breathed for six hours.” Did she offer encouragement? “No! Can you imagine? ‘Go on, girl!’ No, I was silent. It was a greater achievement than I’ve seen anybody do. There were forceps.
“At one point she looked at me,” Kirby continues. “Halfway through a difficult contraction. I blew her a kiss. Why? So embarrassing. And when he was actually born the nurses brought me round to see him come out. I was crying my eyes out. All colour came back to the mother. It was holy. And then I was introduced, and they went, ‘Oh God, Princess Margaret!’”

For her first lead in a film, the actress wanted a character as challenging as many of those she’s played onstage. She found it in Kornel Mundruczo’s “Pieces of a Woman.”

LONDON — Vanessa Kirby has never given birth, but after shooting her first lead movie role in “Pieces of a Woman,” she kind of feels like she has.
“Whenever I see a pregnant woman now, or someone’s telling me that they’ve just given birth, I smile,” she said in a recent video chat. “I feel with them.”
The two full days she spent shooting a searing scene for the film could explain this psychic confusion, as could the thorough way Kirby, 32, immersed herself in the role.
In “Pieces of a Woman,” which debuts Jan. 7 on Netflix after a limited theatrical release in December, Kirby plays Martha, a pregnant woman whose home birth goes horribly wrong.
This pivotal event at the beginning of the film plays out in a 24-minute, single-take scene that starts with Martha’s first contractions and ends in tragedy. The camera follows Martha, her partner Sean (Shia LaBeouf) and a midwife, Eva (Molly Parker), around the couple’s apartment, condensing the agonies of labor into under half an hour.
In September, the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where Kirby won the best actress award, and began to be talked about as an Oscar contender.

Vanessa plays Tallie on the upcoming The World To Come which will premiere on Sundance Film Festival 2021. It will premiere on the film festival, February 2nd, 8 p.m.

To celebrate this news, we release a brand new image from the movie, now available in our gallery.

In eighteenth-century upstate New York, Abigail (Katherine Waterston) is increasingly defeated by grief and the drudgery of rural life. Her deference and propriety maintain a mundane equilibrium with her husband Dyer (Casey Affleck), but her narrated dairies offer a picture into a richer internal life. When spring brings newcomers Tallie (Vanessa Kirby) and husband Finney (Christopher Abbott) to the otherwise empty landscape, the journal entries frantically anticipate—and then enthusiastically document—an affair with Tallie. As menial machinations are interrupted and patriarchal sovereignty is questioned, both marriages buckle. The wives’ connection is threatened, but Abigail and Tallie’s love for each other is steadfast, both onscreen and in handwritten pages.
