Having starred in a variety of roles, the father of Angelina Jolie now takes on what is a rather personal and warming role as Gus in the heartwarming drama, Surviving The Wild. We spoke with the actor about the movie, the emerging young star he works alongside and what awards season movies have caught his attention…
Away from the film, it’s obviously awards season at the moment and as an actor who was won an Academy Award and copious Golden Globes, do you still keep an eye on those films being tipped for success? And are there are any specific films you are drawn to this year?
Sure I do. One of the films that deeply impressed me is the film of my daughter [Angelina Jolie] called First They Killed My Father. It’s a film done completely in the Cambodian language and the story is very compelling, and the acting is spectacular. I have a great love for that and I’m glad it’s getting some attention. I also thought The Florida Project was quite remarkable and it’s great that it is getting so much attentions. It’s an exciting time of year as it puts focus on excellence.
