Jude Dry. While gay men are often portrayed as desexualized comedic relief in Hollywood, lesbians are used for hyper-sexual titillation. A British spy tasked with tracking down a double agent in Berlin just before the fall of the Wall, Lorraine takes out an endless stream of bad guys with killer moves and a poker face so neutral she barely registers a personality. The film hints that Lorraine was involved with recently deceased James Gasciogne Sam Hargrave , but her relationship with her Berlin contact David Percival James McAvoy remains entirely professional — if not a little contentious. Percival acquiesces, and never makes a move again, something more men could learn to do. Without distractions, Leitch centers the romance, creating a world where lesbian relationships are just as valid as any other. There are no offensive jokes, no one has to come out, she never has to explain herself.

The year-old actress has a steamy moment with her 'Atomic Blonde' co-star Sofia Boutella, who plays a French spy, and admitted they found the scene "easy" to film because they are both used to carefully choreographing things because of their mutual dance backgrounds. Charlize - who plays assassin Lorraine in the action thriller - said: "With Sofia, it was easy just because were both dancers and you have to choreograph those scenes quite a bit. Otherwise, they just become silly. There is a technical aspect to it, so with her it was really easy because she thinks like me because we're dancers. We shot that scene in, like, 45 minutes and with the guys, they're not dancers, so, it takes a bit more work. I enjoy both -- yes! The year-old actress was proud with how far she pushed herself for the action scenes of the film. She told 'Extra': "We always wanted to raise the bar a little, but with the action, we wanted it to still feel that a woman could do all of that stuff -- that was important for me as a woman, I wanted it to feel authentic, so no one can say a woman can't do that. However, Charlize admitted the scenes took their toll on her body and she managed to chip two of her teeth during fight training.
