Daniel Craig, James Bond, goes drag for Women’s Day film

Share

The film “Nowhere Boy” film maker and artist Sam Taylor-Wood and features the voice of actress Judi Dench in the style of “M,” her spymaster character in the Bond movie franchise.

The script asks a besuited Craig-as-Bond a series of questions about issues facing women including pay inequality and domestic violence.

Craig, who is silent throughout, then appears in a long blonde wig, knee-length dress and women’s shoes as Dench reads a list of statistics designed to underline the extra hurdles women face in today’s society.

“Bond is challenged by ‘M’ to think about gender inequality, and I hope that the film encourages viewers to do the same,” said Taylor-Wood.

“Despite great advances in women’s rights, statistics show that when it comes to the balance of power between the sexes, equality is far from being a global reality.”
