Jodie Foster is back on the silver screen with Hotel Artemis, a flick set in the not too distant future of Los Angeles. Foster plays the Nurse, a woman who runs an exclusive emergency room that treats criminals.
The film’s art-deco, film noir infused aesthetic gives Hotel Artemis a distinct, eye-catching look, and Foster had nothing but praise for filmmaker/writer Drew Pearce. “Best first time director I’ve ever worked with actually,” said Foster, whose last feature directing effort was 2016’s Money Monster.. “Most prepared. Had everything in his head. A complete vision. He really loves old Los Angeles. He’s not a native. He just came here and fell in love with it and I grew up here and I feel that same way. This film really reflects that.”
