Last year at the Toronto Film Festival, we had the pleasure of sitting down with one of our favourite British filmmakers Carol Morley, alongside star of the silver screen Patricia Clarkson, for their collaboration on the unique cop thriller Out of Blue – out this Friday.

In a serene hotel courtyard we discussed how conventional cop dramas are so steeped in cinematic tradition, and whether their approach towards the project was born more so out of film, than reality. they also comment on the otherworldly feel, and how of course this differs from the director’s striking docu-film Dreams of a Life, while Morley also talks about her admiration for Clarkson.

Their evident friendship illuminated the interview, for Clarkson too speaks of her indelible experience shooting this film, and also on the internalised display that this character require. In the meantime, we also get quite deep and discuss the universe, because why not?

Watch the full interview here:

Synopsis

Mike Hoolihan is an unconventional New Orleans cop investigating the murder of renowned astrophysicist Jennifer Rockwell, a black hole expert found shot to death in her observatory. As Mike tumbles down the rabbit hole of the disturbing case, she finds herself grappling with increasingly existential questions of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and exploding stars Рcosmic secrets that may hold the key to unraveling the crime, while throwing into doubt her very understanding of reality.
Out of Blue is released on March 29th
