Winslet plays Nancy Cowan, mother to a boy who hit another boy with a stick, in this drama directed by Roman Polanski from the play by Yasmina Reza. After Nancy’s son Zachary hits Ethan, Nancy and her husband Alan (Christoph Waltz) go to Ethan’s home to discuss what happened with his parents. Co-starring John C. Reilly and Jodie Foster.
If Roman Polanski invites you to join in any project, you really don’t say no. I had seen the play in New York so I was already very much a fan on the piece. I just felt extremely fortunate to be included.
