David Cronenberg, Sarah Gadon, and Paul Giamatti at Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival (played on Cinebox program)David Cronenberg Director Interview Paul Giamatti Robert Pattinson Sarah Gadon
Sarah Gadon (beings 6:57):
Cosmopolis is going to be a really complex film, but at the same time I think it will have a lot of very classic Cronenberg elements, and certainly a lot of special attention, a lot of emphasis on humanity and technology and just kind of resurfacing a lot of Cronenberg-esque themes. It will be very different from A Dangerous Method.
Cronenberg (begins 7:40):
The movie is him [Pattinson], he’s in every scene. Even in Twilight he’s not the only actor. But in Cosmopolis, although there are many other wonderful actors—like Paul Giamatti- they come in and out; Rob is always there. So it was fun to talk to him and to basically convince him that he was as good– good enough–better than good, to play this role and to my delight, I found him to be a superb actor.
Giamatti (beings 8:10)
He [Pattinson] plays a kind of impossibly powerful wealthy American, and it’s one day of his life as he’s crossing Manhattan in a car limousine to get a haircut. I play, among many other things that happen to him in the movie, I play a guy who’s obsessed with him, a stalker. We have a great scene– the climax of the movie is about a 15-20 minute scene– which is long scene for a movie, hopefully it works!
