And now you know why I went to Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. My interview with “Black Swan” star (and likely Oscar nominee) Natalie Portman is the cover story for the new issue of NOW — and she and director Darren Aronofsky discuss the film in greater detail in the audio clips, so don’t miss those. There’s also this fun little thing about her body of work.
Also in this issue, I interview Yeo Joon Han, writer and director of the very, very entertaining new Malaysian musical “Sell Out!”, which opens tomorrow at the Royal.
Oh, and “Kings of Pastry”, D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus’ documentary about cake bosses, opens at the Lightbox today. I thought it was a pretty fun little trifle when I caught it at Hot Docs earlier this year; Susan was slightly less enthused. You might want to check it out, is all I’m saying.
