What do have the filmmakers Harmony Korine, Vincent Gallo, Lars Von Trier, Whit Stillman, Kimberly Peirce, Olivier Assayas and David Fincher in common? Chloë Sevigny had played explosive roles in first or second feature films of all the above filmmakers. But before her movie debut in Harmony Korin’s ‘Kids’ in 1995, Chloë Sevigny had been anointed as the ‘the coolest girl in the world’ by author Jay McInerney in his piece for ‘The New Yorker.’ The fame followed after she appeared as a fresh face for Sassy magazine photoshoots and a popular video by rock band Sonic Youth.
Born as the daughter of a Polish American mother and an accountant turned interior painter father, Sevigny always stands firm for her views. During her early 40s, she got into trouble for being fiercely opinionated. She keeps herself in the limelight as a fashion icon and startles moviegoers by handpicking edgy roles. Movies like ‘Kids,’ and ‘Brown Bunny‘ made her the eye of the storm of the indie film renaissance in the late 90s and early 2000s. In 1999, the movie ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ earned her an Academy nomination for the Best Supporting Actress category.
Sevigny created a buzz at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival with the Vincent Gallo directorial ‘The Brown Bunny,’ which featured the actress and Vincent Gallo in an unsimulated blowjob. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Chloë Sevigny movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Chloë Sevigny films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Chloë Sevigny movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
