Moderator Annette Insdorf interviews actress Kristen Wiig and special guest Liza Johnson after a preview of Johnson’s film Hateship Loveship. In this quietly affecting drama adapted by Mark Poirier from Alice Munro’s 2001 short story, Wiig plays a shy caregiver hired by a widower (Nick Nolte) to look after his granddaughter (Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar nominee for True Grit). A cruel hoax leads her into a romantic situation with unexpected results. The Hollywood Reporter praised the “beautifully restrained performance from a dowdy Kristin Wiig as an Iowa caretaker who’s tricked into love,” in a film that co-stars Guy Pearce, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sami Gayle and Christine Lahti.
