Jemima Kirke’s Growing Pains After ‘Girls’: On Marriage, Divorce, and Art in the Trump Era
The actress best known for her work on the HBO culture bomb describes how she learned to stop resenting ‘Girls,’ and her whirlwind performance in a new film, ‘Wild Honey Pie.’
In Wild Honey Pie!, which premiered at the South By Southwest Festival this week, Jemima Kirke stars as one half of an eccentric married couple attempting to pull off a “Shakespeare by the Sea” festival.
Shifting between comedy and tragedy, writer and director Jamie Adams’ exploration of art and monogamy benefits tremendously from Kirke’s memorable performance. As Gillian, Kirke sets a series of fires, breathing endless oxygen into her worst ideas and impulses. She cheats on her husband, kisses a potential employer, curses out her mother-in-law and frets constantly over her less-than-profitable playwriting career. As Gillian stumbles into new lows, Kirke infuses her character with so much genuine feeling that no one—not her husband nor the audience—can hold any of it against her. It’s an ugly, frantic, funny, challenging role, one in which Kirke appears to have lost herself completely.
Some new photos from Wild Honey Pie and the movie will be shown at the SXSW Film Festival which is during March 9-18, 2018 in Austin, TX. It seems like Jemima is going there as well! We are really looking forward to this movie!

UK comedy-drama Wild Honey Pie has wrapped a four-week shoot in Wales.
The film marks writer-director Jamie Adams’ fifth feature, his previous credits include Black Mountain Poets, which played at Edinburgh and SXSW in 2016.

The project is produced by Adams’ Twenty Dollar Pictures, alongside David Wade and Maggie Monteith for Dignity Film Finance and Fivelanes Films, in partnership with Noel Clarke and Jason Maza through Unstoppable Entertainment.
Unstoppable previously produced director Adams’ Cobie Smulders-starring feature Songbird, which wrapped earlier this year and was picked up for world sales by AMP International.
Wild Honey Pie follows a woman who is pressured to move beyond her meandering writing career and get a more stable job. She decides to mount a Shakespeare by the Sea festival, an ambitious plan that could have tricky ramifications for her marriage.
Jamie Adams commented: “It has been wonderful to be back in Wales with this incredible group of talented people. Wild Honey Pie has been in development for some time, and getting us all together in the same place has been a challenge worth taking.”
Producer Maggie Monteith added: “Our slate of films with Jamie continues to bring great talent in front of and behind the camera, to an initiative that is proving itself to be both fun and rewarding. It’s an addictive process.”
Producer Jason Maza added: “We’re excited to be collaborating with Jamie again after a successful experience on Songbird, he has unique filmmaking style that is original and fresh and we can’t wait to see the end result.”
