“Van Gogh” by Maurice Pialat revised by Lucas Belvaux: “Successful films do not get old”

After the O.J. Simpson case and the assassination of Gianni Versace, Ryan Murphy revisits the case that nearly cost Bill Clinton his mandate. In collaboration with the former intern herself, who is co-producing this season with very contemporary accents. To see Thursday October 28.

Did the 1990s germinate all the ingredients that made the Trump years? This is what the American Crime Story series and its creator Ryan Murphy seem to draw over the seasons.

A liberation of speech, with very contemporary accents.

Ryan Murphy is no secret that it was unthinkable for him to direct this third season without the endorsement of Monica Lewinsky. He therefore met the former White House intern several times to explain his project: revisiting the ultra-media affair from the point of view of the women involved. To convince her, he even offers her to become a producer of the series, with a right to oversee the script. Monica Lewinksy accepts – a way to reclaim her story more than twenty-five years later.

It’s the chief executive and she, a kid just out of school, who lost her job in the White House! “Like a late update, fed by reflections from the #MeToo movement.
