“Living” has had one of the most extended lives of any film this awards season, premiering all the way back at Sundance and then going on to also screen at Venice, Telluride and TIFF before opening in limited release a few days ago from Sony Pictures Classics. A remake of Akira Kurosawa’s classic film “Ikiru,” the film stars Bill Nighy in a rare showcase leading role for the respected British actor, which has generated Oscar buzz for his performance and Nobel Prize-winning writer Kazuo Ishiguro’s screenplay. Ishiguro and director Oliver Hermanus were kind enough to spend some time with us talking about their work on the film, which you can listen to down below. Thank you, and enjoy!
