Edge love scene online + new affiliate

Cillian and Keira's love scene

The much talked about sex scene from The Edge of Love (due to Keira Knightley's decision to perform the scene topless) has finally reached the Internet. In the short clip, Cillian delivers his romantic lines in a tender murmur that gives us just a hint of the gentle lover he plays as William Killick. This scene also proves, once again, how much the camera loves Cillian. Take a moment to appreciate the beautiful ... cinematography!

I know that I'm in the minority among Cillian fans who post, but to me, those actions in "Red Eye" did not indicate nurturing or romance to me. Jackson Rippner has no compunctions about violence, and when he whispers that and slightly opens her shirt to see her scar, it's in the middle of assaulting her. It's on a rape continuum to me, it's sexually threatening, and to me, rather scary. His attraction to her is disrupted by his violence toward her -- any empathy that might be there is cloaked in control and threat.

I didn't see his performance as passive. That's why I think that if he can get cast in roles that give him the opportunity to show difference sides of his sexuality, he'll be totally up to the challenge.

Well, when his character whispers, "Did someone do that to you?" And after he slams her into the wall (nurturing?) he brushes his lips across her cheek. During the scene that she describes the trauma she experienced, he looks at her with such empathy. And when he tells her its just business (blowing up a family), the character doesn't believe it. I agree with Wes Craven, that Rippner wishes he could be with her, he could be better with her. At the end, he's staring up at her--resignation and regret. Oh brother, are you buying this?

Maybe it's edited as it is because KK is uncomfortable with the love scene...?? I've seen her in a few other movies with love scenes and she's not exactly steaming up the screen for me.

Does he look bulked up here? In that screen shot his arm looks pretty big. I know he's pretty wirey - I wonder if he worked out differently for this scene/movie especially.

Anyway - for me the warm and tender words he is whispering to her are much hotter than the rest of the scene. I'll take sexy pillow talk over blurry arms/legs/elbows/backs anyday.

Hey Claire, sorry not to be clearer, but I was responding to "DMaus" probably even more than I was responding to you.

But did you really think he seemed nurturing in "Red Eye"?

No, no, no, now. I would never say he can't do a love scene effectively. I'm a fan, after all! But he comes across as a nurturing soul. There is a lot to what you say about casting, writing, directing all determining the outcome. The actor still needs to convince the audience that he IS the character. Sometimes I just don't buy it. It must be a huge challenge.

I still love every minute of every film that he's in- (well, OK, not Sunshine). But he's mercurial in other ways and he'll keep taking on great roles. I want a front row seat.

I don't agree with the suggestion that Cillian is not comfortable portraying onscreen sexuality in a non-passive way. "Red Eye" is not exactly a passive role, and he plays the sexual menace quite convincingly. I think the real issue here is that a slender, pretty, not-very-tall man like Cillian has not yet been offered many roles where he could show a more sexually dominant side. He hasn't done very many roles with big sex scenes, and while this may be his choice, I suspect that it has more to do with how casting directors and film directors view him.

I highly doubt that "The Edge of Love" was edited the way it was to make up for Cillian's inability to do the love scene effectively! I think you're attributing too much to Cillian in terms of his roles, when actually the directors, writers, editors and casting directors have much more to do with what his characters get up to sexually.
