Actress Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale, The West Wing) attended South by Southwest (SXSW) for not just one film but two films that she starred in. Moss plays the lead in the indie punk rock film Her Smell and is one of the stars of Jordan Peele’s critically acclaimed horror film Us.
Elisabeth Moss, director Alex Ross Perry, and fellow co-star Gayle Rankin attended the red carpet before the Her Smell screening on Saturday, March 9 at the ZACH Theatre across from downtown Austin.
Her Smell synopsis
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 band mates, 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.
