About the film:
In Interview, Sienna Miller (Factory Girl, Casanova, Alfie) and actor/director Steve Buscemi (Lonesome Jim, Fargo, Reservoir Dogs) go head-to-head in a sexually charged drama about media, truth, and celebrity.

Self-destructive journalist PIERRE PEDERS (Buscemi) is no stranger to violence and inhumanity. Having made his name as a war reporter, he has traveled the world seeing some of the most horrifying sights imaginable. So he feels that his current puff-piece assignment, an interview with pop diva, TV and movie star KATYA (Miller), is beneath his dignity. The two meet in a restaurant and, instantly, it's a collision of two worlds—Pierre’s serious political focus and Katya’s superficial world of celebrity. But perhaps all is not as it appears.

When Pierre is slightly injured in a traffic accident inadvertently caused by Katya—she's the proverbial girl who causes traffic accidents—they end up in Katya's spacious loft for a long night of talking, drinking, sparring, and coming close to a sort of embattled intimacy.

Each is scarred in their own way, aching from deep, hidden pain. But honest revelations give way to punishing deceptions. Their confrontation evolves into a passionate verbal chess game spiked with wit, intrigue and sexual tension, capped with a riveting twist ending.
Rated R for language including sexual references, and some drug use.
