Forget day trips to the beach; kidnapping is the new weekend getaway in the indie dramedy Take Me, which sees Netflix star Taylor Schilling tackling one of her wildest (and best-acted) roles yet as Anna St. Blair, a headstrong professional who hires the floundering founder (director-star Pat Healy, sporting a fabulously absurd toupee) of a boutique abduction business to whisk her away as the willing victim of a staged criminal plot. With deep pockets and a high threshold for pain (she actively wants him to slap her around), Anna’s requests gradually intensify as the film progresses, culminating in a sobering conclusion that offers fresh perspective on the tried-and-true formula of self-exploratory cinema: In order to find ourselves, sometimes we have to, uh, forcibly take another soul along for the ride. —Joey Nolfi (@joeynolfi)

HollywoodChicago.com: What quality did Taylor Schilling bring to the role of Anna that surprised even you?

Healy: It was a surprise in the extent to which she took the role. I certainly saw that in ‘Orange is the New Black,’ because she could be airy and funny, but also having dramatic chops when called upon. I kept thinking again of Carole Lombard, how she could be this beautiful and glamorous movie star, yet she could be hilarious or dramatic. She did the screwball roles where she drags some schlub down the rabbit hole, and Taylor can do that as well. She was first on my list of people who I knew I could get the script to, and she was the first to see it.

When we actually shot it, she really surprised and exceeded my expectations on how far she took the character. It gave a great and tangible meta quality to the film, with two people putting on a ‘show,’ but my character not knowing when it is a show and when it isn’t. As a director, supposedly controlling the scenario, I thought I had that authority as well, but also found that I wasn’t in control at times either, and it all worked out well.
