CLOUD ATLAS SUSAN SARANDON & HUGO WEAVING INTERVIEW (Video) – Susan Sarandon and Hugo Weaving spoke to ScreenSlam about the upcoming epic Cloud Atlas, based on the novel by David Mitchell. Written and directed by visionary directors Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, this sci-fi adventure tells the story of multiple characters in various time periods, and how their lives intertwine with each other. The two stars discuss their experience on the set, the film’s emphasis on characters, and the impact of winning awards.
”It’s an amazing film experience first of all. A groundbreaking experiment of an adventure film that has to do with love and then has a lot of ideas that go from time period to time period to time period in a very amusing fashion, but when you get home…you’ll have to something to argue about, and that you would want to go back and see it a second time.” – Susan Sarandon
“All of the characters are in some way holding on to a position that they have in life and structure they want to maintain for their own ends.” – Hugo Weaving
PLOT: An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
