This year at Sundance, I’ve decided to do interviews. This is new, I know. During the last two years of covering the festival, I’ve stuck primarily to reviewing films and covering acquisitions news. But this year, I’ve decided to perform a series of interviews focused on filmmakers — mainly young and first time filmmakers whose movies are worth seeing. Thus far, I’m happy to say that I’ve had a few really great conversations.
One such great conversation was with the cast and crew of One Too Many Mornings, a film I reviewed positively just this morning. Written by stars Anthony Deptula and Stephen Hale and director Michael Mohan, the film follows two high school friends who come together over their various problems — one has a drinking problem and the other is running away from his longterm girlfriend. It’s a very funny, well-executed comedy with a lot of heart. This made it easy to talk to these three gentlemen, as well as their co-star, the lovely Tina Kapousis.
Have a look at my very fun conversation below, where we chat about the long process of making this movie, the anxious first moments at Sundance and the reason why Tina Kapousis won’t come within 10-feet of me anymore. Seriously, it wasn’t me.
