From Gunpowder & Sky comes Her Smell, a dramatic roller coaster following the life of punk shockstar, Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss). We see Becky doing the general rock star things, performing, disagreeing with her band mates, making a fool of herself in front of camera crews and participating in general debauchery. You know, the usual.
Then we see the infamous singer fall from grace, trading in her sold out shows for a domestic lifestyle that includes children and the daily struggle of sobriety. We see Becky discussing the good old days in what could be a conversation with a friend although it gave off the vibe of being an interview for a documentary. Could this conversation spark something in Becky that makes her eager to pursue music again? Or will this movie take the I, Tonya mockumentary route?
Now I’m not saying Becky Something was inspired by an actual person but throughout the trailer I was reminded heavily of real life punk rocker, Courtney Love. Love, the front women for the group Hole, has gone through her fair share of failures, successes and controversies over the years. Doing so while juggling motherhood and her rocky relationship with sobriety. Becky Something looks and even sounds like Love in some scenes and being a Hole fan, I’m intrigued. Of course it helps that Cara Delevingne is joining Elisabeth Moss in the cast. Check out the trailer for Her Smell below!
Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) is a ’90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted bandmates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky’s chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.
