Daniel Garber talks with Kelly McCormack and Alec Toller about their new film PLAY: THE FILM
This is Daniel Garber at the Movies for culturalmining.com and CIUT 89.5 FM.
OK folks, listen closely: there’s a new movie, called Play: the Film starring “play” actors who play actors in a play.
Got that? The screenplay was written by an actor (Kelly McCormack) who plays an actor in the movie. But, in the movie, the play is written by two other actors, and the final version by the director — that’s the director in the movie, not the movie’s director (Alec Toller). And the play’s director rewrites the script because he wants to turn it into a TV movie. So an actor takes revenge.
Understand? I didn’t think so. But don’t worry.
Play: the Film is premiering this Saturday at 4:15 pm at the Royal Cinema as part of the Canadian Film Festival. I speak with the movie’s writer-producer-actor Kelly McCormack and director Alec Toller who explain it all…
UPDATE: PLAY: the Film won “People’s Pick for Best Flick” at the Canadian Film Fest!
