Nichols, Negga and Kroll on Charlie Rose
Loving writer/director Jeff Nichols is joined by lead Ruth Negga and supporting player Nick Kroll on Charlie Rose.
Jeff Glor, in for the traveling Charlie Rose, asks Nichols of his intent when drafting the film's subtle, sparse script.
"I've realized it in taking the film out into the world and showing it to people...is that people bring their own belief systems into the theater with them. People see themselves in the film and take what they want and need out of it," Jeff Nichols.
The full round-table discussion can be viewed at Charlie Rose.

Joel Edgerton as Richard and Ruth Negga as Mildred give performances that will be talked about for years.
“Jeff’s script is so beautifully written. This is a story that gets into your heart and touches deep wells of feeling. ”
Ruth Negga: remember the name. It's been a long time since an actor/actress has me so unapologetically in the bag. This woman is something special...
They weren’t martyrs, and didn’t want to be. They weren’t symbols, and didn’t want to be. They were two people in love who wanted to be with each other and their family.
