Mexico.- When the Earth freezes and becomes an uninhabitable place outside, the visionary Mr. Wilford Create a great train like an ark, in which humanity must take refuge to survive.
Throughout the thousand and one wagons that this peculiar means of transport has, people live confined and segregated by social classes, where those of ‘The tail’ they are victims of injustice and their survival depends on the policies and whims of the elite, who live at the head of the railway.
This dystopian starting point presented by the series ‘Snowpiercer’, available from today on Netflixinevitably has certain similarities with the current pandemic of the coronavirus that lashes the world.
The subtopics that are explored in history have always resonated with contemporary themes, more so now with this pandemic that we are experiencing, particularly with the issues of confinement ”.
Everyone on board the train, the Snowpiercer, has been separated from their community and the life they used to have, and I think we are all going through a version of that right now, “said Jennifer Connelly in an interview, who she plays Melanie Cavill, the head of hospitality.
The series, a kind of television reboot of the eponymous 2013 film, directed by the award-winning Bong Joon-ho, is in turn based on the cult French graphic novel ‘Le Transperceneige’.
The Mexican Everardo Gout directed the eighth episode.
The story begins almost seven years after the freezing of the planet, when the train began to circulate non-stop around it.
Tired of deprivation, inequality and violence, those who live in ‘La Cola’ plan to take control of the locomotive, led by Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs), a former homicide detective.
Revolutionary plans are altered when Layton’s skills are requested by himself Wilford to solve a series of order-altering murders within the Snowpiercer.
One of the main changes to the 2013 film is that the Connelly character is secretly (discovered in the first episode) the mastermind behind the train.
One of the things that I loved about my character is the position she has, I found it a very interesting opportunity to play a woman like that. I liked his place and what he says about his strength.
