Demi Moore‘s captivating performance in Coralie Fargeat‘s latest film, The Substance, has left audiences in awe at the Cannes Film Festival. Moore fearlessly embraced a role that demanded vulnerability and rawness, pushing the boundaries of on-screen nudity and violence.

The Substance, a gory and satirical take on beauty standards and toxic masculinity, features Moore as Elisabeth Sparkle, a former actress turned TV host embroiled in a fierce rivalry with a younger star played by Margaret Qualley. The film’s explicit scenes, including a graphic nude fight between Moore and Qualley, garnered acclaim at Cannes.

During a press conference, Moore highlighted the importance of trusting her co-star, Qualley, and Fargeat, the director, in creating a safe and collaborative environment for filming intimate scenes. She emphasized that the film’s bold imagery was crucial to its narrative and offered a profound exploration of societal standards.

Addressing parallels between the film and her own experiences in Hollywood, Moore rejected the notion of being a victim of ageism, instead emphasizing The Substance’s critique of idealized femininity from a male perspective.

Fargeat, known for her unflinching portrayal of violence against women, explained that the film’s graphic nature was intentional to underscore the extreme violence inherent in societal beauty norms. The male characters in The Substance serve as embodiments of toxic masculinity, signifying a broader critique of harmful behaviors.

Joining Moore in this cinematic endeavor, Dennis Quaid delivered a poignant performance and honored the late Ray Liotta, who was initially cast in a key role. The Substance, produced by Working Title and set for release on Mubi, marks a significant milestone for the streaming platform with its extensive theatrical distribution.
