Michael B. Jordan, John Krasinski and more

In this episode, John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) talks about how his real-life experience of being a parent influenced the way he directed and re-wrote this film and why he cast deaf child actress Millicent Simmonds, while Rosamund Pike (A Private War) discusses how an eye-patch radically changes the way she negotiated the world and how she played real-life American journalist Marie Colvin. Michael B. Jordan (Creed II /Black Panther) and Charlize Theron (Tully) discuss how they prepare for roles when it dovetails with their current realities. Hear Theron’s thoughts on growing up in South Africa and how that affected the way she watched “Black Panther.” Finally, Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Kindergarten Teacher) and Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) discuss the psychological divide between television and film, reflect on the existence of feminine filmmaking and the importance of total respect between director and actress.
