Colin Farrell and Ed Harris Talk To Filmclub
Stars of The Way Back speak to junior reporters for the education charity
The stars and director of new film The Way Back, which is released on Boxing Day, have spoken to Filmclub, the education charity and experts in film for young people.
Two junior reporters Harry and Callum, who are Young Ambassadors for the nationwide charity, quizzed the film’s stars – acting legend Ed Harris (The Truman Show, A Beautiful Mind), Colin Farrell (In Bruges, Minority Report), Jim Sturgess (The Legend of the Guardians, The Other Boleyn Girl), Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement) and director Peter Weir (The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society, Witness) at the UK premiere about the new film and the characters they portray.
When asked about what he thought of the finished product, Colin Farrell admitted he is not a fan of seeing himself on screen; “I’m terrible with appraising anything that I have anything to do with. As soon as I walk onto the screen, the film is ruined for me!”
Jim Sturgess said, “It brought me back to being freezing cold. I saw myself freezing out there on the mountain tops. I remember what that felt like… It was such an exciting thing to see the film finally on the screen and I was so proud.”
