Charlbi Dean, a known name amongst the DC fans and fashionistas, has died. According to sources, the South African actress passed away on Monday because of a sudden illness. Currently, no one knows what was the illness that she was fighting against. However, we know that Charlbi Dean died in an NYC hospital. She recently got the biggest role of her life in the movie “Triangle of Sadness.” The movie has not even hit the theater yet. However, it managed to impress the critics of the Cannes Film Festival.

More About Triangle Of Sadness
The Triangle Of Sadness became an instant hit even before it hit the theater. The movie revolves around a cruise ship that is filled with super-rich people. After the skin, all the rich people are left to survive on an island. Ruben Ostlund is the writer and director of the movie. The movie belongs to the comedy and drama genres.
The movie received an eight-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. So, we expect the movie to steal the heart away from the viewers. The movie is set to be released on October 28, 2022.
The major theme of the movie is power-dynamics and class conflict. The wealthy and the rich people first thought they were in power, only to realize later that there were criminals on the ship too. It then changes the power dynamics of all the people on the cruise.
New York Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival will also feature the movie.
