So Here's What Happened
Carolyn Talks 'Hell Hath No Fury' with Director Jesse V. Johnson
Directed by Jesse. V. Johnson, and written by Katherine Lee McEwan and Roman Serir, Hell Hath No Fury, is a World War II action about the strength and determination of Marie DuJardin (Nina Bergman) to bring some justice for her family, when she's given the ultimatum of helping a small band of U.S. soldier find a hidden cache of gold, or be killed.
In Hell Hath No Fury, Nina Bergman plays Marie DuJardin a real woman who who single-handedly stood against German forces, the French resistance, and a band of US infantrymen after she was branded a traitor by her countrymen. While the men around her seek to find treasure as their prize for taking part in a war they're tired of fighting, Marie is trying to find a way to bring peace and dignity to the memory of those who were heinously killed for simply being Jews.
For this episode of Carolyn Talks...she speaks with Jesse about creating an action film where the protagonist, a woman is unable to use her physical strength to fight against her captors, and has to rely on her wits and their desperation to outsmart them, and how Nina does this through her impressive performance. Carolyn and Jesse also get into how war makes monsters out of men, and Jesse's philosophies as a director who give his actors the space to craft their character's stories.
