Slacker Sunday: Kristen Stewart talks Certain Women

For the next several Sundays I’m featuring conversations with some of the most interesting women actors working today. Like many book2movie fans I’ve got my eye on several movies based on books with The Light Between Oceans, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Girl on the Train, Certain Women, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, Arrival and Nocturnal Animals topping my list. Why? They star or costar some of the most exciting actresses working today, young women that seem destined to dominate this year’s movie buzz: Alicia Vikander, Eva Green, Emily Blunt, Kristen Stewart and Amy Adams. 

I began last week with a video interview I shared in which Alicia Vikander talked about one of the fall season’s most exciting book2movie adaptations, The Light Between OceansContinuing in that vein, this week’s Slacker Sunday Video features Kristen Stewart on working with Kelly Reichardt in Certain Women. The film is an unusual weaving together of three Maile Meloy’s short stories starring Stewart, Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Lily Gladstone. Certain Women is set for release on October 14th. 

Kristen Stewart’s storyline is based on Travis, B. but veers from Maile Meloy’s telling in that Reichardt has substituted a young woman—played by Lily Gladstone—for the presumably male ranch hand in Meloy’s story. 

Listen to William Hurt read the story, Travis, B.

Here’s Stewart from Sundance where the film made its debut.

Which fall film are you most excited to see?
