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.
