I first saw Max Mayer's Adam at Sundance back in January. I fell in love with it there in Park City and gave it a glowing review. My quote later ended up in the trailer and I have since been mentioning it it as much as I can (to the right people) because it is certainly a film I think a few people will fall in love with. While I didn't have the chance to talk with Max Mayer while I was at Sundance, I did finally catch up with him a few weeks ago in Hollywood while he was here promoting the release of the film (which will hit limited theaters starting tomorrow). And I'm certainly glad I finally got to talk with him! Read on to watch the full interview.
Watch my interview with Adam writer and director Max Mayer:
This interview was shot using my Flip Mino camera. As everyone knows, I only really do interviews when I really have something to talk about with the filmmaker, and this time that was certainly the case. I really wanted to get to the bottom of the change in the ending of the film (as I saw both the Sundance version and the latest version which had a completely new scene at the end that had been shot after Sundance). Adam stars Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrne and is being released by Fox Searchlight. It arrives in limited theaters tomorrow, but head to the official Fox Searchlight website for details: www.foxsearchlight.com/adam/.
