Debuting to acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival is January of this year, Jesse Peretz’s adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel Juliet, Naked brought together Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke and Chris O’Dowd in a story of love rediscovered.
James Kleinmann sat down with the film’s stars Chris O’Dowd and Rose Byrne in New York to talk about what it was like to create an on screen relationship gone sour, how important it is for partners to agree on movies or music and encountering fans of work they might have forgotten about themselves. Much loved late ’80s comedies Twins and Mannequin also somehow make it into the conversation!

Juliet, Naked is released in the US on the 17th of August.
Plot: Juliet, Naked is the story of Annie (the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan) and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.
