Interview with Robert Pattinson
Still, it would require a particularly dedicated film-festival junkie to recognise Benny Safdie and his brother, Josh, the siblings behind Good Time. The independent film-makers have twice taken a bow at the Director’s Fortnight sidebar at the Cannes Festival, with The Pleasure of Being Robbed, in 2008, and Daddy Longlegs, in 2009, but had yet to receive any kind of mainstream theatrical distribution when Pattinson happened upon the brothers. “I saw a still photo of the actor Arielle Holmes on the banner of Indiewire and I just loved it,” Pattinson says, shrugging. “It was from the movie Heaven Knows What, and it was before the trailer came out or anything. I hadn’t seen any of the Safdies’ work. I just immediately wanted to do something with them. So I got their email. And then, when the trailer for Heaven Knows What did come out, I said: ‘I knew it! My instincts were right.’ I met them the next day, and they didn’t really know what to make of me. They were scratching their heads. ‘But you haven’t even seen the movie yet?’” sources:
