Robert Pattinson, Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper: REMEMBER ME Interview Video
by Joan Lister | Apr 23, 2010
Robert Pattinson and Pierce Brosnan interview about Remember Me, with Dutch subtitles. The five-minute clip was broadcast in March, but it’s quite interesting and well worth a look.
Initially, Brosnan explains that his character “is a bit of a prick,” but has “feelings” after all — as is shown later in the film.
Pattinson, for his part, tries to put into words his approach to the character of Tyler, the rebellious young man at odds with his distant father (Brosnan). He particularly emphasizes the sense of “hysteria” Tyler feels when he finally gets to let it all out.
Others interviewed are director Allen Coulter and co-star Chris Cooper, who plays leading lady Emilie de Ravin’s tough-cop father. Cooper surely sees the film’s ending in a totally different way than many critics, calling it “a sort of love letter to New York.”
In Pattinson’s view, the ending “does overshadow everything, and it gives a different significance to every single moment in the movie. And I think that’s why it makes it a different type of movie.”
Among the Remember Me scenes shown on the clip are a family scene in which Brosnan’s patriarch tries to subtly assert his patriarchal authority, and the confrontation scene between father and son in front of some very embarrassed businesspeople.
Remember Me was written by Will Fetters. Lena Olin, Ruby Jerins, and Tate Ellington are also in the cast.
Robert Pattinson will next be seen in David Slade’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, co-starring Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, which opens on June 30.
