I’m going to make this intro quick and easy.
“The Wackness” is one of the best films I’ve seen this year and it’s so much better than “Hancock,” that it’s a crime more of you won’t have a chance to check it out this weekend now that it’s playing in limited release.
The film has a voice and a spirit that doesn’t come along too often, and it’s filled with great performances across the board. Plus, there are so many funny moments that it’s perfect for a date or just to go with a bunch of friends. Trust me, everyone will relate to at least one of the characters on screen…as it’s a coming of age story that’s as real as anything I’ve seen in a long time.
If you haven’t heard of “The Wackness” yet…
Anyway, I recently interviewed writer/director Jonathan Levine and Olivia Thirlby and the interviews are below. Both of them have a lot to say and I think you’ll enjoy both interviews. And if you missed the Sir Ben Kingsley and Josh Peck interviews,
- When he looks back on Sundance, what was that experience like
- Talks about how he is like the main character
- Did he do the haircut for today’s junket?
- We talk about the music in the film
- What else are they doing on the web
- Says he is working on a spy novel adaptation for Sony and says it’s going to be like Bourne Identity on Acid.
- What was Sundance like for her
- She talked about watching all the movies after she was done promoting
- What was it about the script that made her want to play the part
- True or not true: Sir Ben makes you watch Gandhi before working with him
- She talks about first meeting Sir Ben and working with him
- She talks about her upcoming films and how she’s working with Brett Ratner
