The Francesca Eastwood film, M.F.A., premiering at this year’s SXSW, doesn’t shy away from taboo topics. Directed by Natalia Leite and written by Leah McKendrick, M.F.A. is a female-driven movie that centers on an art student (Eastwood) who emerges as a vigilante after the accidental slaughter of her rapist.
Eastwood stopped by The Hollywood Reporter offices to talk about the film and its role in supporting more female creators in the industry.
The fact that M.F.A. was written and directed by women wasn’t actually the reason Eastwood decided to come on board for the project, even though she feels that it is extremely important now. “At the time I read the script, I was hungry for going on a journey with a character and playing a character that gets to go through a transformation,” the actress explains. “The script was flawless.”
