Kendrick has a minor role as Diana in this thriller and political fiction, directed and produced by Robert Redford. Redford also stars in the film as Ben, Diana’s ex-boyfriend. This film is based on the book by the same name, about former members of the Weather Underground who plot to blow up buildings in United States cities. Co-starring Julie Christie and Susan Sarandon.
…it feels so silly to pontificate on that role; I’m in the movie for like thirty seconds — but my feeling was certainly that this is someone who is ambitious. But someone who thinks of herself as having her heart in the same place as the kids in the Weather Underground probably thought their hearts were. You know, actually trying to make a difference. I think she thinks these are bad people. I’m going to catch bad people.
