Super Star Saturday – Andrew Haigh Edition
March 10, 2018
This week I was out and about to meet director Andrew Haigh. Andrew has become one of my favorite directors. He has a new movie coming out called Lean on Pete. The film stars Charlie Plummer, Travis Fimmel, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, and Steve Zhan. The new independent film focuses on a teenager, Charley, who has just moved to Portland with his dad and gets a summer job with a racehorse owner. He develops a fondness for one of the horses. While working, Charlie deals with some major life changes. The film is definitely worth checking out.
After the film, there was a Q & A with Andrew. During the Q & A, Andrew not only discussed the new films, but also talked about his other films and his work on HBO’s Looking. Once the Q & A had finished, I made my way to the stage to ask Andrew to sign a couple of posters for me. Andrew was very nice and said he would come down from the stage to meet with me and a few other fans. He signed my posters and took a picture with me. Andrew was very gracious, and is a major super star in my book. Thank you, Andrew!
