Q&A with Sienna Miller and James Gray

Can you discuss the process of adapting the book for the screen?
James Gray: The book is a meticulously researched thing. Immediately you realize that you’re in for it if you change something factually and of course I had to, because it’s a movie.

Q&A with Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig

How did you develop the wonderful physicality of Greta’s character Brooke? She emotes with her entire body.
Well first, Greta was born. And grew up into that person.

Q&A with Morgan Neville

The letter’s from a five year old boy and it says, “Dear Mr. Rogers, are you for real? Are you for real or not?”

Q&A with Julie Goldman, Samantha Power, Greg Barker

What was the process like to bring this film together?
Julie Goldman: This is our sixth film together, so we have an established and unusual machine that works for our flow of producing.

Q&A with Emma Thompson

How much fun was it to play someone that rude?
It was bliss, of course, because I think we were all far too well brought up. From very early on we’re encouraged to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to everyone for no good reason, and of course for things we don’t actually want.

Q&A with Chloé Zhao and Brady Jandreau

Can you take us through the process of making this film? There was a long period of time when you were building toward something like this.
Chloé Zhao: During my third year at NYU, I was thinking about what feature film to make. That’s when I first went out to Pine Ridge.
