Isabella Soares is a Resource Writer and Peer Mentor for Collider and a Rotten Tomatoes-approved critic. She is passionate about teen dramas, such as 'One Tree Hill' and 'Glee', as well as anything with a mindblowing plot twist.

The Big Picture For actress Daisy Ridley, her latest feature, Magpie, is a passion project in every meaning of the word. Not only does she lead the film and serve as producer, the neo-noir thriller is penned by husband and screenwriter Tom Bateman and was inspired by her own experiences on a previous set. At this year’s South by Southwest film festival in Austin, Texas, members of the cast and crew attended to celebrate the world premiere of the movie with other festival goers.

Release Date March 9, 2024 Director Sam Yates Cast Daisy Ridley , Shazad Latif , Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz , Alistair Petrie , Pippa Bennett-Warner , Niall Wright , Cherrelle Skeete , Andy M Milligan , Jenny Galloway , Emmet Kirwan Runtime 90 Minutes Main Genre Thriller Writers Tom Bateman COLLIDER: Congratulations on your movie. I'm just going to say that audiences will have a really good time with it.

Daisy Ridley and Tom Bateman On the Genesis of 'Magpie' This is one of those interviews where you can't get into the meat and potatoes of it because you're going to spoil it for people. So, I know this was generated by an idea that you came up with and then worked with Tom. Talk a little bit about that genesis.

SHAZAD LATIF: One of the things that they might be surprised about is that we sort of followed the pattern of how a movie goes, in the sense that me and Daisy spent two weeks in the house being very intense, being very cold to each other. Then, in the movie, when I started to go to the set, we did two weeks at Syon House. It's quite nice to film like that because, often times, you don't really get to have a really intense experience and sort of follow the way the characters are going.

MATILDA LUTZ: I think what for me was very fun to do on set is that, I'm not going to spoil it, but I was allowed with Sam and Shahzad to explore different nuances and play the character in different ways. And also, what I really love about it is that we're so quick to judge nowadays, especially, you know, actors and public personas. During the whole film, we shift from one judgment to another for all the characters, which I think is really interesting.

YATES: We had our own special, Godfather thing going on, you know, where everyone kind of was at the complex in Godfather Part I, and they were all living there and eating there and everything. It was like a kind of warm family before it all fell apart. And for us, we had this really intense section in the house where Shazad and Daisy's characters and the kids are at, but it was gray, it was winter, it was intense, it was claustrophobic.
