Wonderstruck premiere: A chat with Todd Haynes, Oakes Fegley and Jaden Michael on the red carpetCultureCinemaLondon Film Festival 2017
Todd Haynes’s magical, timeline-crossing, fantasy film Wonderstruck premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last Thursday. The movie pursues two stories: one following Rose (Millicent Simmonds), a deaf girl in the 1920s, the other a boy, Ben (Oakes Fegley), who is struck by lightning during the 70s. Both in search of absent parents, their journeys start to coalesce together. On the red carpet, we interviewed Fegley, co-star Jaden Michael and the director Todd Haynes.
The young actors spoke of their familial experience on set, as well as teaching Julianne Moore how to dab.
Director Todd Haynes discusseed his reasons for embracing period dramas and his experience of directing children.
