Skip Hollandsworth speaks to Dallas International Film Festival goers about his inspiration forÂ and experience in the making of BERNIE:
Iconic indie filmmaker Richard Linklater (BEFORE SUNSET, DAZED AND CONFUSED) and screenwriter Skip Hollandsworth deliver a witty and affectionate black comedy about small-town Texas in BERNIE. Based on fact, the film tells ofÂ aÂ well-liked,Â warm-hearted mortician (Jack Black) suddenly accused of murder. Shirley MacLaine plays the town’sÂ richest andÂ most hated citizen,Â while Matthew McConaughey is a spotlight-craving prosecutor whoÂ hopesÂ the case will make him a media celebrity. All threeÂ starsÂ have been winning raves at international film festivals, from London to Los Angeles to Texasâ?? own SXSW.
