In this interview we sit with actor Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire) and writer/director Mike Cahill (Another Earth) to talk about Fox Searchlight’s complex and mind-blowing film I Origins.
A sly sci-fi picture, one that’s more idea driven than effects driven, it explores ideas of science, religion and is bound to start up conversations and discussions no matter which side of the fence you put your faith. Also, these guys are a bucket of laughs. Enjoy our time with Michael and Mike, otherwise known as (for the purposes of our session) “Mickey Blue Eyes” and “Dr. Cahill“.
And when you see I Origins, make sure you stick around after the credits…
The film is written and directed by Mike Cahill and stars Michael Pitt, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey and Brit Marling. Fox Searchlight’s I Origins is slated for limited release this Friday and expands in the following weeks.
