DP/30 @ Telluride '16: Amy Adams, Arrival (and Nocturnal Animals)

  • Published on Sep 26, 2016
  • Amy Adams gives two very different performances this fall. In Arrival, she is a linguist racing to figure out what aliens arriving on earth want and finding out more than she expected to. In Nocturnal Animals, she is the affluent, pampered power player whose ex-husband sends her a book that is profoundly disturbing. Brilliant in both, her 6th Oscar nomination seems assured, She spoke to David Poland at the Telluride Film Festival...her record 7th DP/30 interview.

    I wonder if an "Arrival II" sequel is in the works? I would like to see the aliens learn English as her character learns their language.

    She wanted to be an Ice skater and she looks very similar to Tonya Harding.... She would've been an ideal casting choice for I, Tonya....

    She's great and Arrival is a great movie. I like both a lot.
    I still think, though, that the movie is less about the story of a mother and more about both: communication being key in EVERY kind of relationship and time being completely subjective and not something that dictates everything else.

    Don't you worry Amy, no one likes Susan nor Edward ahaha. I'm reading the book. I still haven't got to see much of Susan's back story, ctually in the book, as far as I go, I'm getting to know Edward and Tony more than Susan. Or Tony along with Susan, sometimes they are so alike.

    • Claretea

      Agree totally. I thought she made the right choice leaving him.

    • Hard Boiled Entertainment
      Hard Boiled Entertainment 2 years ago +1

      By the time the movie ended, I had lost all sympathy for Edward. He couldn't take any criticism, no matter how constructive...he blamed everything on Susan, refusing to even consider that MAYBE he had a part in driving her away in the first place...and to top it off, his spiteful, petty behavior indicated by the ending. Susan grew up. Edward never did.

    I remember Amy during the American Hustle promotion, David O'Russell had just broken her spirit in half and it translated into her interviews. You could sense before she revealed it in the press that an interior obstacle was her preventing from feeling at peace with herself. Now she got out of this tunnel. Good for her !

    • Hard Boiled Entertainment
      Hard Boiled Entertainment 2 years ago +7

      She herself has constantly clarified that it was not Russell, per se--it wasn't that he "abused" her or anything. It was that playing Sidney, period, was taking a big emotional toll on her, and the intense style of Russell's directing (which she hadn't had a problem with on "The Fighter", where her character was easier to handle) was getting to be too much for her to handle, WITH that. Remember when she got the Golden Globe for American Hustle, she gushed over him a bit...which I doubt she'd have done, if he'd "hurt" her.

    she looked so good in nocturnal animals, kinda had that whorish look, i loved it. i hear great things about her in this movie, hope she finally gets her oscar, she is like female leo dicaprio. such beauty and a world class actress.
    cant wait to see her lois lane in JL after her boy toy died, her chemistry with henry was a lot better in dawn of justice.

    Hey David Poland, you should do a conversation with Cheryl Boone Isaac about the OscarSoWhite controversy. With your in-depth cinema knowledge, her industry knowledge and your complimentary style of chatting, she's bound to tell you so much. That would be an engaging and educational conversation

      Me too. But this year they nominated the incredibly overrated Meryl Streep (Again) instead.

      newflava89AGAIN Yes it's a sci-fi (masterpiece) movie and I think it's between Isabella Huppert for Elle & Natalie Portman for Jackie. Someone's gonna win...

    • YouPube
      YouPube 2 years ago

      if Arrival isn't sci-fi or alien movie, she probably can win this year.

    David, the moment that Amy is talking about it's between 22:26 and 22:29. She gets emotional.
    Can't wait to see those movies. I was hoping to hear more from Nocturnal Animals, but still, great talk!

    The room, the way Amy's dressed, her suddenly breaking out into "Oklahoma" at one point (21:53)--I would LOVE to see our gal in a Western. A fun, "classical" Western.
