In this romantic drama directed by Paul Haggis, Neeson plays Michael, a writer who recently lost his wife who gets involved with a new lover (Olivia Wilde). They cannot commit to their on and off relationship because of a deep, terrible secret. Co-starring Kim Basinger, James Franco, Mila Kunis and Adrien Brody.
It’s lovely to be with a director who knows what he wants, and lays all the sandbox out for you. Who says, ‘OK, I’ve got what I want, now go play.’ I love that.
