Power and abuse valid for all genders says Blanchett

Portrait of abusive conductor in Todd Field's Tàr

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 1 - Power and the abuse of power is valid for all genders, Cate Blanchett said Thursday in presenting at the Venice Film Festival her latest film, Todd Field's TÁR, in which she plays a famed German orchestra conductor and composer who is guilty of sexual abuse and is accused in a #MeToo moment.
    The double Oscar winner, 53, said that not only men, but also women, when they have power, sometimes use it to get sexual favours.
    "I never considered the LGBT aspect of the film, but certainly my Lydia likes women," said the Australian star at the Lido.
    "But I firmly believe that homogeneity of gender is not important in the art world, on the contrary, it's the death of it.
    "In other words, I have never thought about the gender, the sexuality, of Lydia.
    "This film is the very human portrait of a person with all her weaknesses". (ANSA).
