VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Jane Levy On Working With David Strathairn ‘A Little Prayer’ At Sundance
In the film A Little Prayer, views follow Tammy (Jane Levy) and David (Will Pullen), and David’s parents, Bill (David Strathairn) and Venida (Celia Weston). The two couples live together in North Carolina as a close-knit family unit, until Bill starts to suspect that David is not faithful to his wife. Stuck between wanting to protect his daughter-in-law and not wanting to pry too deeply into his son’s personal life, Bill must face his own personal behavioral patterns.
In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Levy discussed what it was like working with Strathairn.
“I’m a huge fan,” she said. “It’s a real privilege to work with someone like David Strathairn. What’s so exciting about Sundance is we’re here honoring independent films. This is a really small production, we didn’t have many days to prep or shoot and so David and I just had to create this relationship very quickly and he’s so brilliant and he’s so kind and he’s so generous and so I was really really really lucky to have him as a scene partner.”
Levy also revealed how much being part of the film meant to her.
“I mean honestly I don’t think I could like tidy up my answer and do a sound bite because this film was so meaningful to me,” she said. “It’s like in my heart for so many reasons and I am so impressed by Angus he is such an amazing writer and filmmaker and I’m just like so honored to be a part of this.”
