Uma Thurman has joined Lars von Trier’s epic pornographic drama Nymphomaniac.
Currently filming in Cologne, Germany and will be split into two feature films. There will be a soft and hard core version of both films.
Thurman will be joining Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Stacy Martin, Connie Nielsen and Christian Slater.
Charlotte Gainsbourg plays Jo, a self- diagnosed Nymphomaniac. One night, an old bachelor, played by Stellan Skarsgard, finds her in an alley, badly beaten. He takes her home to nurse her back to health, while she recounts to him her life of erotic adventure.
Von Trier’s work often has a bit of controversy that goes with it and it sounds like Nymphomaniac will be no different.
Shia LaBeouf has said there may or may not be unsimulated sex in the film.
What are your thoughts on the film? Is Von Trier simply making this to push boundaries?
