Talking Movies: Interview with Tilda Swinton

BBC Talking Movies host and Anglophenia contributor Tom Brook has just returned from the Sundance Film Festival, where he sat down with Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton.

She has a new film coming out called I Am Love, in which she portrays a Russian woman who has married into an elegant upper-middle-class Italian family. Deep melodrama ensues when her character, a trophy wife, falls for a younger man.

Swinton has described I Am Love as “Visconti on acid.”  Tom talked to her about the film – and got her thoughts on what it was like two years ago when she was up for an Oscar for Michael Clayton.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
