ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | ROONEY MARA as A RUSALKA, the unquiet spirit of a young woman who had died near water, which dances and sings by the light of the moon and lure men to their watery deaths.

Oh, my love, she sings and beckons with her pale hand, her hair strung out long over her breasts, twisted with moss. Come, come, come to me. He is beautiful and he is golden, and he has lips like a ripe plum, and she does so miss it, she does so miss the sun; the burn of it on her skin, the way it caresses her hair. She misses the taste of light. Come, my love, come, my sweet. She smiles, and spins; shall I dance for you, my love? When he draws near, she lets him wrap his arms around her, and feels the sun within him, pressing against her skin. When she drifts back, when the water comes up to their knees, he follows; when it comes up to their throats, he is grasping her ever tighter. Down, down, down to the river deep, she murmurs to him, oh, my love; won’t you come for a visit? He follows; they always follow, and below, where the moon does not reach, she presses her lips against his, and finds no breath. When he falls to the river deep, his lips blue, she thinks sadly: I only wanted a kiss.
