OWEN TEAGUE BIOGRAPHY: TO LESLIE
Teague stars in the 2022 drama film, To Leslie, in which he plays the titular character’s son. Teague shared with uInterview his own synopsis of the movie.
“We kind of discussed between ourselves how difficult it is to summarize this movie because it’s just kind of a person’s life with a window into it,” Teague began. “I play James, [Leslie’s] son. The movie is about a woman who wins the lottery and gets a whole bunch of money and spends it all drinking and her life falls apart and she has to kind of deal with that. It’s her relationship with her son and her family… and these two complete strangers and also alcohol.”
Teague stars in the film alongside the likes of Andrea Riseborough, Allison Janney, Marc Maron, Andre Royo and Stephen Root. When asked about what it was like working with costar Riseborough, Teague revealed that though most scenes were tough emotionally, Riseborough still managed to make filming enjoyable.
“[Riseborough] is so extraordinary, and we also have worked together before. This is our second time playing mother and son. She’s so easy to work off of… She makes it real for me, and so when there are these really difficult scenes, it’s really difficult, but at the same time it’s fun because she’s so good.”
To Leslie was released in the United States on March 12, 2022.
