Her new addition to the movie, Close, will be front and center for buyers at Cannes courtesy of WestEnd per its recent acquisition though their female audience-geared WeLove banner.

She plays Sam, a counter-terrorism expert newly assigned to protect Zoe, a rich teenage heiress, only to find themselves on the run and fighting to survive following a violent kidnapping attempt.
