Netflix has released the first trailer for Maniac which premieres on September 21. There was unfortunately no footage of Jemima as we could see, iMDB currently lists that Jemima will appear in one episode – but lets hope for more!
Anthem Magazine took two wonderful photos of Jemima and they can be viewed in the gallery!
Tribeca Film Festival Selects
The 17th edition of Gotham’s annual film mecca is now in the books. Step inside for our collection of exclusive portraits!
And that’s a wrap!
The Tribeca Film Festival went as quickly as it came, but not without first putting its stamp on the movies to come in 2018. Robert De Niro and Co. has long cast a spotlight on New York-focused narrative features and documentaries, as well as foreign pictures—a calvelcade of up-and-coming talent set alongside Hollywood’s most A-list. Since 2002, growing from its humble post-9/11 beginnings into an annual powerhouse, the festival has carved out an impressive niche for itself.
In its 17th year, New York City’s filmic rite of spring kicked off on April 18 with Lisa Dapolito’s Love, Gilda, a documentary tribute to a true original and one of late-night comedy’s all-time greats, Gilda Radner. On April 28, the closing night gala screened another New York story: the first episode of Liz Garbus’s four-part Showtime documentary series The Fourth Estate, which chronicles a year inside The New York Times while it covers the first year of the Trump presidency.
Looking over the list of films at Tribeca is always daunting. When the categories are seemingly endless and with so much on offer, the festival can leave the average moviegoer lost for guidance. Plot summaries aren’t much use, given that there often appears to be two films for every kind of premise. So the only way to discover good movies is to simply watch them, which requires long hours, an unflagging optimism that the next film might be leading the pack and, importantly, a colossal stubborn streak. Anthem has yet to best its 2011 record of seeing 60-plus films at Tribeca. Is this being thorough or just downright insane? You decide. We don’t wish that upon anyone.
Now be sure to scroll back up to the top and swipe through the gallery to get a full rundown of our carefully curated list of featured talent at Tribeca this year—captured by photographer Reto Sterchi exclusively for Anthem—which includes Noomi Rapace, Boyd Holbrook, Nicola Peltz, Eliza Dushku, Alessandro Nivola, Anders Danielsen Lie, Kate Micucci, Molly Ringwald, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Rosemarie DeWitt, Alex Pettyfer, Jemima Kirke, Laia Costa, and many more!
Jemima, her sister Lola and the director of Untogether, Emma Forrest has been doing some press lately for the movie and you can view the interview below and in the video archive.
Andrea is a former teen prodigy turned struggling writer who falls for Nick, a recently successful writer who she secretly resents. Lisa is the responsible younger sister who has an older bohemian boyfriend, Martin, but is drawn to an even older charismatic Rabbi. Two English sisters begin to navigate their wild desires and troubled relationships amidst the backdrop of the infamous Hollywood Hills. Jemima Kirke, Lola Kirke and director/writer Emma Forrest joined BUILD to speak on the film, “Untogether.”
Jemima and her sister Lola Kirke who stars in Untogether together was interviewed by W Magazine, read the full interview in our press archive and view a lovely new photoshoot taken at the Roxy Hotel in New York.
Lola Kirke has just emerged from 10 days’ vocal rest. “I have a hemorrhage on my vocal cords,” she told me recently. “From screaming at me,” explained her sister, Jemima Kirke. It was a late spring morning, and the two sibling actors sat side by side in a vacant hotel room in downtown Manhattan; later that evening, their new film Untogether, writer-director Emma Forrest’s narrative feature debut, was slated to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
“From screaming at Jemima in a scene, but maybe it’s possible that 27 years of rage were coming out,” Lola went on. “Twenty-six, at the time,” her sister corrected.
“This was the best part about it though,” Jemima continued, before Lola cut her off. “The scene got cut.” Jemima corrected her again: “That’s the second-best part,” she said. (They have the distinctly sibling tendency of annotating each other’s stories in real time.) “The first-best part is that you wanted another take, but they kept wanting to move on, right?” Due to the time and budget constraints of making an independent film, there weren’t the resources to do the scene again. “She’s like, ‘Well, maybe if you showed up on time, we would have time for another take,’” Jemima recalled. “I was like, ‘Give the bitch another take.’” And they did—and that’s when Lola burst the blood vessel, after the first take and before the scene was cut entirely. (“You’re Adele!” Jemima remarked.)
“Which goes to show that anger only ever hurts you,” Lola said, affecting the sing-song tone of an after-school special. “So good! So good.”
Deadline posted the first video clip from Untogether and it features Jamie Dornan and Jemima together. 🙂

The story from Forrest, a novelist, centers on a doctor named Nick (Dornan) and writing prodigy Andrea (Jemima Kirke), whose one-night stand evolves into something more — though that is blurry and undefined. She is fully consumed with destructive vices, living in L.A. with her sister Tara (Lola Kirke), who is trying to end things with her boyfriend Martin (Ben Mendelsohn), who gave up his Australian fame as a rock ‘n’ roll god to be with her. Billy Crystal, Alice Eve, Jennifer Grey and Scott Caan co-star.
The film is bowing in fest’s Feature Narrative section on Monday at 9:15 PM ET at the SVA Theatre 1 Silas. Ambassador Film Group is handling sales.
