Bill Pullman Discusses the Joys of Indie Filmmaking and His New Sundance Film, 'MAY IN THE SUMMER'
Humility is always refreshing from a renowned actor like Bill Pullman. The Independence Day star sat down to share his thoughts on independent filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend, and you can tell that he loves what he does. After nearly thirty years in Hollywood, still beams with pride when he talks about the indie film process, even saying that "the most interesting work is in independent pictures."
He discusses the journey to his latest film premiering at Sundance, MAY IN THE SUMMER. Full synopsis after the jump (from IMDB):
High off the success of her first book and planning to marry ZIAD, her sensible, stable and studious fiance, MAY BRENNAN has it all. At least that's what she'd like people to believe. Reunited with her family in Amman, she's thrust back into the chaos of her former existence. Her headstrong mother NADINE, a born-again Christian disapproves of her Muslim fiance so thoroughly she plans to boycott the wedding. Her younger sisters DALIA and YASMINE behave like her children. And her estranged father EDWARD is suddenly and suspiciously interested in making amends. As her wedding day looms, May finds herself more and more confronted by the trauma of her parents divorce. And soon, her once carefully structured life spins hopelessly out of control.
