Transitioning from a child into a full-fledged woman over the course of the film, Ellas’ conflict arises when Anna engages in an intense yet predictably messy love affair with her stepfather. A relationship that ultimately leads the stepfather to abandon the family without notice, Anna is left to deal with the guilt and shame of her own conscience and the decision of whether or not to tell the truth about why he left.
A pivotal character in both her journey as an actress and the advancement of her career, Maria Bosque explains, “I was just starting to gain confidence as an actor so it was a little bit hard in the beginning, but I learned so much from the role and it pushed me in a direction where I had never been before.”
Bosque, who has also starred in the films Solo Yo, Oh Jesus and Final Test, is currently working on the series It Happens, which is scheduled for release in 2015. Bosque plays the leading role of Joanna in the show, a fun loving artist who continually falls in love with unsuitable men.
According to the actress, “Joanna’s best friend Rose (Maia Nikiphoroff) breaks up with her boyfriend and moves in with her, and this is where the story begins. Playing Joanna has been a very different experience for me because she is more of a comedic character and most of the time I play roles that are more serious and dark.”
Next year Maria Bosque will also be starring in the internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning director Elia Schneider’s original stage production The Beach of Joseph K. Based on the work of Franz Kafka, the production is set in a bleak and war-torn world that brings together elements of fantasy and reality through a cast of Kafkaesque characters subjugated by the powers of an unknown force known as ‘The Law.’ Bosque is slated to play the starring role of Dora, a girl who is forced into prostitution in order to survive. The production will run at the award-winning La MaMa Theater in New York.
