The full interview with Michael Lewis from RealD, talking with Dan Slevin and Cinematica 3D expert Miriam Ross on the afternoon of The Hobbit World Première in Wellington – 29 November 2012.
Kailey and Dan finally get to have their say on The Hobbit, meanwhile at the arthouses the Paris Child Protection Unit has a lot on its plate, Charlotte Rampling is a femme fatale and Donald Trump meets his Scottish match. Also, a clip from our i/v with RealD CEO Michael Lewis.
God is in the house this week. He turns up in the values of a wealthy Tennessee family who adopt a poor black kid and turn him into a champion, He features in a big leather book carried across a post-apocalyptic America by enigmatic Denzel Washington, and He is notable for His absence in a Lars von Trier shocker that is unlike anything you will have seen before or see since.
First, the good version. Based on a best selling book by Michael Lewis, The Blind Side would not have made it New Zealand screens if it wasn’t for Sandra Bullock’s surprise Oscar win earlier this year and it’s easy to see why distributors might have left it on the shelf. Personally, I’m glad they didn’t. My companion had no knowledge of, or affinity for, American Football or the complex and baffling college sports structure and was, therefore, a bit left out of a story that managed to push all my buttons fairly effortlessly.
