For W‘s Volume 2, director Luca Guadagnino, who adapted André Aciman’s novel Call Me by Your Name into one of last year’s most beautiful films, cast the British model Adwoa Aboah and the Dutch model Rianne van Rompaey as ghostly sisters lost in the American landscape. Guadagnino’s story, if there was a story, was about twins, freaky twins, an homage to Diane Arbus’s masked children, the Grady girls from The Shining, and one of his favorite films, Tod Browning’s Freaks. “I don’t know what stories I want to tell,” Guadagnino said. “I know what I want to do. I want to make movies that are capable of creating an emotional shock. Whether it is a shock of tenderness or a shock of horror, I’d like to provoke a very strong emotion.”
