Adam Woodward in The British film magazine Little White Lies gave BEGINNERS writer/director some little white space to talk about why Los Angeles is important to him and to his movie. It's fascinating chat about LA, but also about movies in general. In the end, Mills enthuses about movies:
I love the synthesis of all these different things; acting, music, photography, editing... I'm looking at it like a filmmaker, but I love filmmaking and I love watching it happen. I really love making things happen and bringing all those elements together. I love watching 1930s movies like Grand Hotel and Dinner at Eight and thinking about the wardrobe department and the gaffers and what the set must have felt like. I always watch films with a kind of behind-the-scenes monologue running in my head. Because I love making films I love watching films. It's like watching my sport.
