This is bleeping amazing.
Firstly, I had no idea Margaret Qualley, who plays Justin Theroux and Amy Brenneman’s daughter on HBO’s The Leftovers, was a trained ballerina. I knew she was Andie MacDowell’s daughter, and thought she’s been “good” in the role of Jill Garvey, but, after watching this incredible performance, consider me WOWED. Not only is her dancing phenomenal, but director Spike Jonze has apparently provided Qualley the exact right medium to completely let go and blow away the world with her expressive abilities; this is an acting tour de force. You won’t even notice this has anything to do with advertising a fragrance; it’s downright brilliant.
Jonze knows how to coax his actors — remember that Christopher Walken/Fatboy Slim collaboration? Dance is also Margaret Qualley’s weapon of choice, and, as you’re about to witness, she absolutely slays.
Now, please pardon me while I gif my brains out.
I love this girl.
