Alex Ross Perry's HER SMELL Starring Elisabeth Moss Premieres This Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival

Elisabeth Moss in Alex Ross Perry's "Her Smell" premieres this Sunday at TIFF and on September 29 at NYFF.

Elisabeth Moss stars as Becky Something, a maniacally destructive punk rock star and leader of the seminal all-female rock band Something She, who pushes her relationships with bandmates, family and followers to the limit as she wages a years long war against sobriety, while attempting to re-engage the creativity that had once led her band to massive crossover success. When a new, younger female band called The Akergirls, led by Cara Delevingne's Cassie, bursts onto the scene, Becky becomes their mentor. With added responsibility and watching her former friend Zelda E. Zekial (Amber Heard) RISE to celebrity megastardom while her career falters, Becky falls deeper into her downward spiral, losing all ties with those she cares about most, including her young daughter and estranged husband Danny (Dan Stevens). It is only when Becky hits rock bottom that she begins to find her path to true redemption.
