DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis sits down with two of the men behind the acclaimed new film "God's Own Country," about a isolated gay man living and working on his family's farm on the north of England who hires a Romanian migrant worker to help out on the farm and sparks fly. Writer-Director Francis Lee talks about returning to the area he had grown up in to make his gay romance, the reaction of the locals, his rules about costuming and camera movement and his approach to directing his actors through physically and emotionally intimate scenes. Actor Alec Secareanu talks about how he came to be cast in the film, delivering a baby lamb on camera, acting in English for the first time and what it was like to see the film on the big screen for the first time. Then both men take a few questions from the Observation Deck leading to answers involving knives, filmmaker Mike Leigh, the films "Dirty Dancing," "Philadelphia" and "Sophie's Choice" and serving brownies in a mall.
