“I’ve had people write parts for me. But I’ve never had anybody even think about writing a script for me. It’s pretty incredible.”
– Sam Elliott
“I just love that Jeff made a movie like this right now. I think it’s rare that people are making stuff like this, taking such risks when making movies. After watching this and seeing that, I hope that more people will be inspired to go crazy and make weird stuff. That would be great.”
– Aubrey Plaza
“The movie shows two very brave people who choose not to do that, taking their constituents with them on a perilous journey towards compromise. It seems to me that’s what we’re ultimately celebrating with the picture; compromise and the ability to live together.”
The Journey does not claim to be historical fact, but that doesn’t make the creatively intelligent fiction it muses on any less fascinating.
The Little Hours is an anarchic fit of physical, sexual and verbal madness that only gets more explosively hysterical as events progress.
As bits of fluffy fun are concerned Lost in Paris is a dance of delicious amusements, watching it an absolute pleasure I’m certain to indulge in whenever the opportunity to do so might fortuitously arise.
“I think in order to try and push back against some of those double standards you have to create opportunities for women in departments where they’re rarely given them. I also knew that, as a woman, there’s a part of me that liked the idea of surrounding myself with other women for this first directorial effort.”
– Zoe Lister-Jones
Elliott nails every scene. It’s a superlative turn, and I’m hard-pressed to think of another actor who could have brought the same sort of lived-in gravitas to the role.
“But beyond that, the movie is actually subversive, it’s smart and it’s got some real poignant things to say, even if they are often being said with a wink. That stuff, the friendship, the celebration of creativity, those are my favorite aspects of the movie. I want people to feel the same.”
