Hollywood stars Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska said the current reckoning with power abuses in the entertainment industry has opened a door to new movies that subvert traditional gender roles, as they presented the feminist Western "Damsel" at the Berlin International Film Festival. Pattinson, the "Twilight" heartthrob-turned-independent-film-actor, said the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct felt like a watershed moment both on- and off-screen. Pattinson plays Samuel, a dim-witted cowboy in the Old West who is searching for his old flame Penelope (Wasikowska), his purported fiancee who he says has been kidnapped by an old rival.The Polish-Australian Wasikowska, who also divides her time between big Hollywood productions such as "Alice in Wonderland," television series like "In Therapy" and smaller budget movies, said her character represented a new take on the old-fashioned Western heroine.
