LLW: Interview with Normal People director Lenny Abrahamson

Welcome back to Loves Labours Watched! This week we were delighted to speak to Lenny Abrahamson, Oscar-nominated director of the 2015 movie Room and the filmmaker behind hit BBC/Hulu show Normal People, based on the bestselling novel by Sally Rooney. We chat to Lenny about adapting the novel for screen, reflecting the novel's intimacy and interiority on film and we take a deep dive into the themes and mood of the series. Later, we also discuss why Helena is not-so-secretly freaking out about Twilight author Stephanie Meyer's long-awaited Midnight Sun. Plus, some thoughts on the recently released Parks and Rec online reunion special. Enjoy!
