Take a listen on The Road to Cinema Podcast! Actor/director John Krasinski and actress Margo Martindale participated in a press conference earlier this week in anticipation of their upcoming release ‘The Hollars.’ Opening in limited release Friday, August 26th, the film follows an aimless artist, John Krasinski, who returns to his small Mississippi town upon learning that his mother, Margo Martindale, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. All of this occurs while Krasinski’s character balances a pregnant wife, Anna Kendrick, the perils of his father’s faltering business, and the reappearance of a lost love.
Take a listen to this press conference with John Krasinski and Margo Martindale as they discuss everything from John’s personal connection to the film’s themes of fatherhood and family, Margo crafting the character with help from John’s direction, and some advice John learned about filmmaking from his past collaborator George Clooney.
