Take one role in a racy Lars von Trier film (Nymphomaniac), one recently banned ad campaign (Miu Miu), and one frenzy-rousing long-term boyfriend (Shia LaBeouf), and you have what the media might call a risqué new face. But 22-year-old actress Mia Goth doesn’t bask in sensationalism. “A lot of people get pigeonholed because it makes it easier to understand them—or assume you understand them,” says the half-Brazilian, half-Canadian Brit over coffee in East London. “I think the way you break away from that is by constantly doing different jobs.”
In that spirit, Goth will appear this month in the drama Everest, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Robin Wright, and Josh Brolin. Based on a climbing expedition in 1996 that killed eight people, the sweeping adventure sees Goth play Meg, a 15-year-old who is transformed by her father’s attempt to survive a Mount Everest expedition. “What I found really great is being able to play such an arc,” says Goth. “Going from a relatively naive girl from a perfect American upbringing to a much more somber young woman. She grows through her father’s experience.” Filming most of her scenes with the laser-sharp Wright, Goth often had to remind herself she was on set and not an audience member. But the young actress came prepared, having written an exhaustive diary for her character. “I wrote about her school friends and crushes-I really entered the mind-set.”
Next year Goth will appear in The Ring director Gore Verbinski’s second horror film, A Cure for Wellness. In the meantime, she’s holding out for the kinds of nuanced characters she imagined playing the first day she stepped on a film set in Brazil, where her grandmother was an actress. “You have to be fierce as an actor,” Goth says. “It’s not the actor’s job to be interesting; that’s the script’s job. It’s our job to be truthful and brave.”
When not auditioning or fronting campaigns for Miuccia Prada (“Meeting Miuccia is like meeting the queen”), Goth loves gardening and reading at her home in Los Angeles, just over the hill from Hollywood. Before setting off, she quotes Oscar Wilde: “I read a quote of his recently that said, ‘Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.’ I’m just looking for great masks.”
Although hardly a peak achievement, Baltasar Kormakur’s Himalayan epic is a properly grueling, strikingly unsentimental chronicle of the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy.
Following the 2014 and 2015 avalanche disasters that killed more than 35 people trying to scale the highest mountain on Earth, the timing is either wildly inappropriate or grimly right for “Everest,” though it would be awfully hard to argue that it’s too soon. A properly grueling dramatization of the ill-fated May 1996 expedition that saw eight climbers expire in a blizzard, this brusquely visualized, choppily played epic serves as the latest cinematic opportunity for Mother Nature to flaunt her utter indifference to human survival. Achieving fitful flurries of emotion amid an otherwise slow, agonizing descent into physical and dramatic paralysis, director Baltasar Kormakur’s latest and biggest U.S. studio effort should ride its Imax 3D event-picture status to decent theatrical returns worldwide, aided by a topical resurgence of interest in the movie’s subject. Still, with its more stolid than inspired execution, it’s unclear whether the Sept. 18 Universal release can reach its desired commercial apex.
With little still known about the three Indian climbers who died on the mountain’s north face on May 10-11, 1996, “Everest” understandably focuses on the more widely documented experiences of the five who perished on the south face. No single source is cited as inspiration for the screenplay by William Nicholson and Simon Beaufoy (who know a thing or two about wilderness survival stories, having co-written “Unbroken” and “127 Hours,” respectively), though the press materials mention books written by two American survivors of the climb: Jon Krakauer’s bestseller “Into Thin Air” and Beck Weathers’ “Left for Dead: My Journey Home From Everest.” A few other accounts were also published, including “The Climb,” by the Russian Kazakh mountaineer Anatoli Boukreev, who disputed key details in Krakauer’s version of events. Still, it’s Boukreev (played by Icelandic actor Ingvar Sigurdsson) who concedes the silliness of arguing about who did or said what. As he notes, staring up at the 29,029-foot-high colossus that awaits him and his fellow daredevils: “The mountain always has the last word.”
Sharing that fundamental respect for the danger of their undertaking is New Zealander Rob Hall (Jason Clarke), the cautious leader of an expedition guiding company called Adventure Consultants, which helped popularize the climbing of Mount Everest in the early 1990s. In April 1996, we see Hall bidding farewell to his pregnant wife, Jan (Keira Knightley), and heading to Kathmandu to meet the eight clients he’ll be leading up Everest. They include Weathers (Josh Brolin), a Texas native who seems determined to conquer Everest on cocky charm alone; Yasuko Namba (Naoko Mori), a Japanese woman who’s already got six of the Seven Summits under her belt; and Doug Hansen (John Hawkes), a humble Seattle mailman who’s taking another stab at Everest, having made it within a few hundred feet of the summit in 1995.

When Mia Goth auditioned for Lars von Trier’s films Nymphomaniac Volume I and II, she knew she would have to read in the nude for the director. “I was fine with that,” said Goth, who lives in Los Angeles (she’s the girlfriend of the tabloid darling Shia LaBeouf) and will appear in this year’s climbing epic Everest (out in September). “I did a little boogie around the room to give the nudity some character. For that role, I would have done anything. And my desire must have been clear, because I got the part!” Born in London and raised by her mother in Brazil, Goth, 21, is one of the current faces of Miu Miu and has the beauty of an enchanting alien child. For years, however, her style heroine was the retro-punky Amy Winehouse. “At 14, I was beehived out,” Goth confessed. “I’m glad there are no pictures!” Lately, Goth resists being pegged to a particular style. “I want to seem completely bare. Especially when I’m reading for a role. I want to reveal myself in the audition room. That’s where I’m happiest. I love the competition. Auditioning is like boxing: It keeps me hungry and intense, whether I get the part or not.”
The summer movie season is almost over and attention in the film world will soon be turning back to festival season, with the first slice of news from one of the most prestigious events in the film calendar announced today.
Universal Pictures Everest, the mountain survival tale directed by Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns) has been chosen to open the 72nd Venice Film Festival, which runs from the 2nd-12th September, 2015.
The film will premiere September 2nd in the Sala Grande (Palazzo del Cinema) at the Lido.
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
Everest is set for release on September 18th, with a cast that includes Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, John Hawkes, Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Clive Standen, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Debicki, Vanessa Kirby, Mia Goth, Naoko Mori, Thomas M. Wright, Martin Henderson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson and Charlotte Bøving.
Check out the new trailer for Everest, giving a first look at Hollywood’s take on the true life events surrounding the 1996 Mount Everest disaster.
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jason Clarke as separate expedition leaders, the film follows two groups of mountaineers who endure unbearable temperatures of -40 degrees and struggle through one of the mountain’s biggest ever snowstorms in their quest to reach the top.
Mia plays Meg in the film, it’s unknown how big her role actually is in the film…
Director Gore Verbinski has found the leads for his supernatural horror project A Cure for Wellness: Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth. Revolutionary Road scribe Justin Haythe is writing the script for the New Regency project.
Wellness tells the story of an employee (DeHaan) who is sent to rescue his boss from a European “wellness spa” but soon realizes he’s trapped, and discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients. Goth, who is in negotiations for the role, will play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director’s dark designs for her.
Verbinski, who is also producing through his Blind Wink Productions, last made a horror film (The Ring) in 2002. Since then, he’s focused on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Rango and The Lone Ranger. He’s repped by CAA. Production is slated to start in Europe in June, and the film will be distributed worldwide through New Regency’s deal with 20th Century Fox.
