As BEGINNERS hits England, Time Out London took a moment to speak with the film's writer/director Mike Mills. The short interview focuses on the nature of creating personal stories. Indeed at one point, Time Out London asks him "What made you want to tell such a personal story?
Well, I think personal stories can reach out. I love Leonard Cohen and Federico Fellini, people who express very personal or real things. The intention is to share, not to look inward. What happened with my dad was deeply human, filled with things I could write about, that described life on a deeper level.
