AMC had a chance to sit down and talk to the director of the latest AMC Independent film showing now at AMC Theatres, “The Deep Blue Sea,” starring Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston and Simon Beale.

Synopsis: Hester Collyer has tried and failed to commit suicide. Some time before, she left her husband, a respectable High Court Judge, for a semi-alcoholic former R.A.F. pilot. The relationship was physical and passionate but his ardor has cooled, leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate. By the end she is brought to a hard decision to live, partly through the intercession of another resident of the tenement house, Mr. Miller, an ex-doctor, struck off for what seems to have been a homosexual offense. These two outcasts, socially ostracized for their 'excessive' loves, find a curious and moving kinship.

In this interview, Terence talked about the differences between his movie and the play, the camera work he used in certain scenes, how he first heard about Rachel Weisz, making a period movie, and gives a blunt opinion on Vivien Leigh's performance in the 1955 film version.

Check out the interview below.

The Deep Blue Sea is currently playing in AMC Theatres.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
