Did you enjoy Richard Madden as The Bodyguard on BBC? He may be James Bond in waiting for some folks, over at Netflix Noomi Rapace might just be the female version in Close.
The original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star returns for her third outing in a Netflix Original Film (Bright and What Happened To Monday). In her latest film, she goes all out hardcore as ‘terrorist expert’ becomes a bodyguard.
Directed by Vicky Jewson (Born In War), Rapace finds herself going on the run protecting a young rich heiress Zoe (Sophie Nélisse). After an attempted kidnapping the pair must go on the run.
Ahead of its launch on Netflix, we get a look at the film in the shape of the action-packed Trailer…
The trailer doesn’t take long to showcase that Rapace’s character has a particular set of skills. She may be a woman, but boys don’t let her gender fool you, she’ll kill you with ease. This is a fictional story but she is playing the real-life bodyguard Jacquie Davis, one of the world’s leading female bodyguards. Jacquie has worked for many high profile names from The Royal Family to JK Rowling.
This looks suspenseful, and another complexed character for the Swedish actor. She is making a name for herself picking characters with a lot of baggage. Even if the films she starred in have critically succeeded, her performances are one of the big highlights. Certainly looks a worthwhile watch especially if you enjoyed the aforementioned BBC drama with a little bit more action!
Close, an adrenaline-pumping action thriller written and directed by Vicky Jewson (Born of War), is inspired by the life of the world’s leading female bodyguard, Jacquie Davis. The film stars Noomi Rapace as Sam, a counter-terrorist expert used to war zones, who takes on the job of protecting Zoe (Sophie Nélisse), a young and rich heiress — a babysitting job for her. But a violent attempted kidnapping forces the two to go on the run. Now they’ve got to take some lives — or lose theirs.
Close will debut Friday, January 18th exclusively on Netflix.Powered by Sidelines
