This year, many good music albums were released by music artists, for example: the album Snacks (Supersize) which was released by Jax Jones and the album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country which was released by Florida Georgia Line, but, in my outlook, only a handful of music albums were typically outstanding; they managed to outshine the rest because of their musical contents.

  1. Backstreet Boys

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley is a British actress; she was born in London, England. Knightley has starred in films such as King Arthur (2004), Never Let Me Go (2009), Begin Again (2013) and Colette (2018).

In Colette, Keira stars as a French author called Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette. Colette had written books such as The Pure and the Impure, Gigi and Chéri, and she was married to Henry Gauthier-Villars, who had passed off many of her work as his own.

Keira had received the film’s script from her agent; the film brings to life on-screen somewhere around fifteen years of Colette’s life. Although the movie is set during the late 1800s, Knightley felt that it is very linked to the current age because the movie touches on subjects like celebrity couples and feminism.

Before Keira began shooting for the film, she had memorized the script. Knightley then portrayed the French author on-screen as a woman who had both male and female attributes; the 33-year-old actress even dressed the part – Knightley did not wear a corset underneath her costumes and she can be spotted wearing ties in the movie.

Knightley regards the experience of playing Colette as a sensational experience because she feels that the French author was an imperfect and intrepid lady. She also feels that Colette had managed to carve out some room for herself in an environment which had never done the same for her; I think Colette had an unsettling quality about her probably because of the things she had experienced in her life and she was also somebody who had rather distinct notions of liberties.

Gemma Arterton

Gemma Arterton is a British actress. In her latest film, Vita and Virginia, Arterton stars alongside Elizabeth Debicki and Isabella Rossellini; the film has been directed by Chanya Button. The plot of the film revolves around two bohemian and radical women – Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf.

Vita was a socialite plus an author who would frequently have carnal relationships with other women. Virginia was an author too; she had written several books including To The Lighthouse and The Waves. Vita was in a relationship with Virginia as well. Woolf had actually slightly caricatured Sackville-West in one of her books – Orlando: A Biography, which is about a man (a writer of poetry) who becomes a woman and also (astonishingly) evades death for many, many years.

Gemma has professed that she does not really hail from scholarly circumstances. The 33-year-old feels that both the movie and Woolf’s book – Orlando: A Biography presents Vita and Virginia as women who fancied improving themselves. Arterton also feels that Sackville-West wrote great letters and that she was an unbridled and frank woman; I think Sackville-West was the type of woman who could inspire and also bewilder you – definitely a very complicated lady.

Joanna Kulig

Joanna Kulig is a Polish film actress. She was born in Krynica, Poland to a father who was a poet and a mother who was a cook. Last year, Joanna starred in Cold War along with Tomasz Kot; the film has been directed by Paweł Pawlikowski and it has earned nominations in three categories at the 91st Academy Awards.

Cold War is set during the fifties in Poland and the protagonists in the film are two lovers called Wiktor (Kot) and Kula (Kulig). Wiktor is a music director and Kula is a young singer with a mocking, wicked and joyless character. Wiktor and Kula fall in love despite leading unfree professional lives in a Communist state and their romantic relationship lasts over a decade.

Cold War marks the third time which Kulig has worked with Pawlikowski; the director has characterized Kulig as a smart and humane woman. During filming, the 36-year-old had shared an excellent equation with Tomasz: on-set, the two actors would drink coffee and chat with each other about life. Kulig has termed Wiktor and Kula’s relationship as amorous, lethal and difficult; it is the type of romantic relationship which, in my outlook, is just doomed to fail at some point.

Anya Taylor-Joy

Anya Taylor-Joy has starred in films such as Barry, Split and Thoroughbreds. Joy was born in Florida, United States and before becoming an actress, she had worked as a model. Joy has worked in many films which are characteristically melancholy and yet, she had never desired to steer her career mostly in that direction; it just ended up being that way because Anya found the characters which she had played in those films to be similar to her.

Some of the roles which Anya has played on-screen are that of complicated women. In Thoroughbreds, Joy played the role of Lily – an uncorrupted, harmful and complicated school student (with excellent grades) who strives to be faultless. Joy was captivated by the bad side of Lily’s character and how it just kept getting bigger; Anya had (surprisingly) stood by the character (and her behavior) during the shooting of the film which had taken twenty-two days.

Joy is thrilled for the current age because of how she feels it is rolling out for women; Anya has classified it as an age where the gender of a person is unimportant, in comparison to a person’s complicated nature. The 22-year-old has, sadly, experienced sexist behavior from members of the opposite sex which she had dealt with in her own unique way: she had told those men something like what they did was uncool and also the way that their remarks had made her feel; in Anya’s experience, tackling sexist behavior in that way had remarkably made men act regretful over what they had done.
