“Everyone starts out one way, and ten pages into the script, there’s a different side to it. It’s one of those that you never see the end coming,” comments Sebastian Stan (Falcon and the Winter Soldier) the film Sharper: a perfect plan, a neo-noir mystery thriller that hit the Apple TV+ catalog. We spoke to the Marvel actor and his co-stars in this feature, Justice Smith and Briana Middleton, about the challenge of maintaining an action story through intriguing dialogue.

As Brianna Middleton describes it, Sharper it’s a “perspective film”, because it’s divided into each character’s stories. It starts with Tom, and the first impression the film leaves is that he and Sandra share a very special romantic bond. However, no one would expect a relationship to take such a dark turn and a bigger, more dynamic story to be told.
“There are different points of view in the film where you see different perspectives. You can see the characters differently and I think it’s… I don’t know, there’s humanity in what we see. The different stages of the characters and I think that’s a very human way to see a movie. And it intrigues me and I would like to continue to do so,” says the actress.

A refreshing and human action film
Sebastian Stan, the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is a star obviously tied to the action genre in movies. However, this time he applauded the different approach within that same cinematic style exhibited by director Benjamin Caron (The crown) with screenwriters Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka: “It’s refreshing that we made a film like this with very specific characters…”.
And he adds, “A lot of times you have things like the car chases, the action part or something like that; and here the action scenes are based on dialogues that last much longer than usual in a movie. And they were very well written, it was fun, it felt like you were in a discussion.”
For his part, Smith points out that the narrative is based on the human connection itself. “Our relationships in the way we communicate and the things we want for each other can be as exciting as an action movie. There’s room for all types of movies, but I love this one that takes a wrong path for human attention,” he argues.
