Brothers opens on Friday, and the publicity blitz includes articles in the New York Times, the Boston Globe and the San Francisco Chronicle.
From the Toronto Sun feature on Jim Sheridan and the movie, a little glimpse into what it's like to work with Jake Gyllenhaal:
Of Jake Gyllenhaal he says, “He was always real on set, ‘cause he’s always finding something or looking for something. If you were the type of director who just wanted him to hit his mark, I think you’d curtail him in some way that doesn’t get the best out of him. ‘Cause I think he’s a charismatic actor, who’s always the centre of attention. Which drove me crazy for the first few weeks,” says Sheridan, deadpan, “as I wanted to be the centre of attention.”
Oh, Jim - face it: You never had a chance!
Unfortunately, Jake is NOT the center of much of the media attention for Brothers. Let's hope there are some articles and interviews as the week progresses. Looking forward to more reviews, as well.
