It probably hit him later...'That was GILLIAN!'
To be honest, I doubt it. I don't think it even registered.

Gillian, thank you for your nice and long description of your TIFF day. I'm so glad you got to meet Jason after all this time. Also, your in-depth description of Good makes me really hope that we can all get to see this movie. Thanks for the pix. The Relaxed Jason pic with his leg crossed in front of the other looks like an ad from GQ. He's stylin'!

Thank you for the long description. For a moment I me have imagined that I was there, sat and looking at the presentation.

In the photographies one sees fantastic and that eyes, always they delight me.

I am glad that you will enjoy this night
I hope that it comes soon to Spain, because I would like to see the movie.

Thank you for the video, but it is difficult to me to understand what they say, goes too rapidly =_= Someone might write it, please?

Wow, this interview was full of information and insight from the actors, but the editing gave me whiplash, flitting from Viggo to Jason to Viggo to Jodi to Jason. :shock:

Here's the whole clip, just for you Hatsuan!

Hi, this is (the woman's name) for Red Carpet Diary at another international film festival (I think that's what she says...ENNUNCIATE!), well day 5 and another day of huge premieres. Viggo Mortensen was at this venue, the Visa screening room, a few nights ago as he premiered his movie, Appaloosa. He returned on day 5 for the premiere of "Good".

Jodie Whittacker: My character has an affair with Viggo's character in the 1930s. It spans over 10 years, so eventually it's (or he's) married with a child and I'm very passionate towards Germany and I help, I suppose, steer Viggo's character not so in the right direction politically because I'm very pro-Hitler.

The movie is a powerful study of how one decent man slips into collaboration with evil.

Mr. Sexy: Well, I play Maurice. He's a jewish psychiatrist in the 30s. I'm Viggo's best friend. In the relationship I'm the dominant one and then as the 30s go on, the power bound (??) shifts a lot and you see me really shrink as my rights are taken away.

Mr. Viggo: In difficult circumstances, that's when you really look inside yourself and in this story increasingly things get more tense.

Jodie: In Germany, that's how people vote (??) and at the time it wasn't history, no one could look back on their decisions because they were making them in the moment.

Mr. Viggo: Different people deal with that stress in different ways in society.

Mr Sexy: I can't point the finger at Viggo's character at all for any of the decisions he makes because we do it all the time. I look the other way and I ignore things because it's too overwhelming

Jodie: You know you've got domestic lives going on at the same time.

Mr. Viggo: Sometimes you do wanna lighten up and not talk about the war and not talk about the economy and not talk about the elections and whatever.

Mr. Sexy: We walk in an ethical mindfield everyday in our lives. What's so good (or what the idea?) about my government that I voted for that I love so much because they've done a lot in welfare but there's also a lot of people up without an access to a lawyer and (something about silence) they say the torture is okay, should I be marching on parlament? I don't know, I agree with the rest of it because I'm not locked up.
It's a very subtle, beautiful, modern film about how difficult modern life is..it's just set in the 30s, and I hope that people get it.

Mr. Viggo: The play is kinda legendary, and C.P Taylor, who wrote it. I think that wherever he is, he would be proud and I think we did it justice and it'll get people thinking. What's gonna happen to these people now?, what am I doing? how do I compare myself to them you know?

Mr. Director (Vincente Amorim): It's fabulous premiering here in Toronto. I love the Toronto Film Festival.

Mr. Viggo: I'm glad to be here. I've had a lot of good experiences here in Canada.

Mr. Director: I love the vibe of the proud (??) I love the selection.

Jodie: It's the second time I've been to this cinema, and this festival is an incredibly warm environment to be and to show a film in.\

Mr. Director: This is my second movie, is my second time I get a film premiered in Toronto and it feels great to be here.

Sorry about the mistakes. Some people talked to fast and my english is not exactly perfect. So anyone...go ahead correct me!
