Maggie Gyllenhaal plays a prostitute while filming for “The Deuce” near Port Authority in Times Square, New York City.
Well, we nailed it. We took one look at that wig and figured she was either playing a hooker or a stripper. Of course that wasn’t the most impressive bit of forecasting, considering it’s a movie about the porn industry set in 1970s Times Square.
It’s pretty much impossible to do costuming for a character like this in a setting and period like this one without it looking a little bit like a cliche. A costume designer is better off just embracing it, which is what was done here. There’s no question of who she is or where she is based solely on the costuming.
She’s got great legs. Who knew?
