Listen to/Watch entire show:
Dan in Real Life is not only a family comedy, it's a comedy about family. Writer-director Peter Hedges (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, About a Boy screenplay; Pieces of April writer/director) talks about noise and quiet that define family.
Peter discusses the influence of Ibsen and Chekhov on his writing, how he assembled his stellar cast, his choice of Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche to do the soundtrack, the importance of silence in comedy, and how good writing is often what you don't write!
