Interview: Daydream Nation Writer-Director Michael Goldbach

While most have their eye on Kat Dennings in this weekend’s new big release Thor, the actress also has another film making its US theatrical debut, Daydream Nation, a film from first time director, Michael Goldbach. Goldbach wrote that piece that features Dennings as Caroline Wexler, a big city girl who recently moves to a small town and isn’t happy about it. However, soon enough, her boring new existence is spiced up courtesy of a local industrial, serial killer and, of course, boys. Well, in Caroline’s case it’s a boy (Reece Thompson) and a man, her teacher, Mr. Anderson (Josh Lucas).

In honor of Daydream Nation’s Los Angeles and New York release, Goldbach took the time to tell us all about this lengthy yet rewarding eight-year process, developing his idea and seeing to fruition. Check out everything Goldbach had to say about the inspirations for his story, casting and working with Dennings, Thompson and Lucas and much more in the interview below.
