There wasn’t too much information related to Rupert from this film or at least I wasn’t able to find out about it, so if you have something you want to share to add to this post, I’ll be very grateful 🙂 Here we go with a few general data of the film, and, as usual, some visual delights.
A teenage orphan spends ten years traveling cross-country experiencing life, love and heartbreak. Based on E.L. Doctorow’s story, “Jolene: A Life.” We know Rupert’s character, Coco Leger, when Jolene starts to work as a waitress at an outdoor diner, and she meets Coco Leger, an aspiring musician and tattoo artist. A relationship blooms and Jolene becomes a tattoo artist at the tattoo parlor Coco works at. After passing out and having sex, Coco is revealed to have an addiction to cocaine, and supports his habit and the parlor by dealing cocaine. One evening, a young woman enters the parlor and declares herself to be his wife, Marin, and introduces his son, Coco Jr. Coco returns and is confronted by both women, before he walks out with Marin and the baby. Jolene destroys the parlor, dumps the cocaine on a table, steals the money and dumps her ring in the center of the cocaine, before dialing 911 and fleeing the scene.

Rupert’s screencaps from this film are already uploaded to the gallery, you can check them all via this link. But as advance…
Rupert gave a truly unique personality to Coco. Again, I had the feeling of wanting more of the character, to learn something about his past, but of course, the film was not about him. I was extremely passionate about his aesthetics and his profession (a tattoo artist, which I love). Seeing Rupert singing, dancing… and well, the views… A complete set! . So good, again, thanks Rupert for surprising me again.
