Director David Mackenzie Talks His Tribeca Film 'Starred Up'

By Michael Arbeiter, Hollywood Staff

One of the most interesting films to premiere at Tribeca Film Festival 2014 is director David Mackenzie's movie Starred Up, a drama about a young man who is committed to a London prison where he reunites with his convict father for the first time in years. Aside from subverting expectations about the idea of the prison movie, Starred Up also treats viewers to a new kind of father/son story, and a far more realistic portrayal of therapy than cinematic audiences are accustomed to. Written by a Jonathan Asser, a therapist who pioneered a form of counseling for violent inmates, the film depicts group sessions that cut to the heart of the emotionality behind the prison experience for those serving time.

Speaking to Mackenzie, we got to discuss how Starred Up offers something new in each of the subjects that it brings to the table.
