Hector and the Search for Happiness


Director/co-writer Peter Chelsom:
"Casting Hector was daunting: I needed a cross between the wisdom of an established psychiatrist and the naivety of Tintin. It came in the form of Simon Pegg. He has such a naturally child-like curiosity. He’s capable of looking at the world as if for the first time."

Take Me to the River


Director Martin Shore:
"Take Me to the River is that combination and balance of the uncomfortable comfort that allows performers the ability to go to their highest levels and push the boundaries. By mixing genres, generations, gender, race it is the ultimate and most potent combination for genius."

Last Days in Vietnam


Filmmaker Rory Kennedy:

"Our film really takes off in that last 24-hour period, so to me it’s very much a ticking clock, and I think it’s kind of a sitting-at-the-edge-of-your-seat film: What’s going to happen next?"

The Green Prince


Director Nadav Schirman:
“People say the film plays like a nail-biting thriller and reveals much about the tradecraft of espionage and handling sources. Yet for me it is mainly a story of a relationship, a relationship founded on great individual courage and trust."

Frank


Director Lenny Abrahamson:
“Working on this film got me connected to a world of amazing music I never knew existed. Frank is really a tribute to the anarchic, creative spirit at the heart of this music, and to the value of creativity for its own sake in all parts of life.”

Directors Sam Cullman & Jennifer Grausman:

The Two Faces of January


Writer/director Hossein Amini:
"For [Patricia Highsmith], crime stories were a way of exploring human psychology and identity. Her plots kept us thrilled and entertained while all the time she was digging deep into our weaknesses, human frailties and the secret sides of ourselves we’d rather hide."

Lilting


Writer/director Hong Khaou:

"Despite the subject matter, I think this is a very hopeful film. It’s difficult to convey this to people because to some it feels tonally wrong to have humor. It does work I feel, what you get is one enhances the other as if holding a magnifying glass to it."
