Kiersey Clemons on the Way ‘Dope’ Changed Her Life and ‘Flashpoint’
With director Marc Webb’s The Only Living Boy in New York opening this weekend in theaters, I sat down with Kiersey Clemons a few days ago for an exclusive video interview. During the wide-ranging conversation, she talked about what happens after you’ve starred in a buzzed about film like Dope at Sundance, meeting Marc Webb, some of her favorite New York City movies/shows, getting to geek out with Jeff Bridges, if she’s part of the Justice League movie reshoots, when she found out the Flash movie would be Flashpoint, and a lot more.
If you’re not familiar with The Only Living Boy in New York, the movie follows a recent college graduate (Callum Turner) who discovers that his father (Pierce Brosnan) is cheating on his mother (Cynthia Nixon) only to become smitten with his father’s mistress (Kate Beckinsale). He also gets life lessons from his new neighbor (Jeff Bridges). Written by Allan Loeb (Collateral Beauty), the film also stars Kiersey Clemons.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Only Living Boy in New York:
Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), the son of a publisher and his artistic wife, has just graduated from college and is trying to find his place in the world. Moving from his parents’ Upper West Side apartment to the Lower East Side, he befriends his neighbor W.F. (Jeff Bridges), a shambling alcoholic writer who dispenses worldly wisdom alongside healthy shots of whiskey. Thomas’ world begins to shift when he discovers that his long-married father (Pierce Brosnan) is having an affair with a seductive younger woman (Kate Beckinsale). Determined to break up the relationship, Thomas ends up sleeping with his father’s mistress, launching a chain of events that will change everything he thinks he knows about himself and his family.
