MovieWeb.com have a very interesting new interview with Nicole’s Rabbit Hole co-star Sandra Oh in which she talks in depth about the movie. She doesn’t mention Nicole much, but it’s still a good read if you’re interested in the film:
There are such huge gaps between each project director John Cameron Mitchell chooses to take on. Were you a fan of his before stepping into this project? He seems pretty selective about what does as a director?
Sandra Oh: Oh, Shortbus! For sure. I think you said it right there. He is a very selective artist. You can glean that he is a thoughtful person. Which is true. His choices are deeply personal, which this was for him. He is a real striving artist. In some ways, when you look at the fact that there is a lot of time between his films…People really do need time to incubate between projects. They give their lives to it. You need to let that pass before your fall in love with something else. Knowing his work, meeting him…You know? I am a big fan. Just from artist to artist.
This film is getting mainstream praise, which makes me wonder if he will pull back on the next one…
Sandra Oh: In some ways, you never know what is going to be mainstream or not. I don’t think he works that way in choosing things. Whether it is high profile or not. Yes, Nicole Kidman is in it. And it is a Pulitzer Prize winning play. But I think, for him, it is a much more personal choice and place.
