Lenny Abrahamson: Episode 129


Two years ago Lenny Abrahamson joined Jarlath on the show and he spoke about aiming high. This week, having returned to Dublin after the whirlwind surrounding his Best Director Oscar nomination he discussed how it all came about. Lenny opens up to Jarlath about feeling unhinged in the middle of hype, resisting the temptation to let success change his outlook and the strange technology behind Oscar campaigning.

Lenny discusses his plans for his next big project, gives his thoughts on what makes a great producer, explains the meticulous casting process for Room and explains the wonderfully addictive sensation of being grouped with the elite of the film industry.
