Coming across a children’s book her mother wrote with the biological father she never knew (now a famous author) prompts journalism student Sonya to track him down. The Interview takes us on Sonya’s search for that part of her identity left undeveloped because of an absentee parent; there is something she needs to know about this man to gain some understanding of whom she came from. This complicated parent-child relationship story features a sharp script and strong performances, and it’s the dynamics in the actual interview that highlight their strained encounter.
"I was raised without a father too and have never ever seen him. This script is partially about myself and the whole movie is a peculiar statement of my personal story."- Ivan Sosnin
