CS Video: Falling interview with writer/director & stars Mortensen & Henriksen
Ahead of the powerful drama’s digital and theatrical debut, ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with debuting writer/director Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and co-star Lance Henriksen (Aliens franchise) to discuss their work in Falling. Our interview can be viewed in the player below!
Falling follows John (Viggo Mortensen) who lives with his partner, Eric (Terry Chen), and their daughter, Mónica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago, while his conservative father, Willis (Lance Henriksen), lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. In the early stages of dementia, Willis is brought to John’s California home to help him relocate. Unfortunately, their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s adamant refusal to change his way of life in the slightest.
The movie also stars Lance Henriksen, Sverrir Gudnason, and Laura Linney. The project was produced by Daniel Bekerman, Chris Curling, and Mortensen, and was executive produced by Ethan Lazar, Peter Touche, and Philip Waley.
Mortensen’s directorial debut is now in select theaters and available on Digital and On Demand.
