Are You Wondering How to Get Your Little Buddy to Talk More?
Listen to this wonderful interview by Terry Gross of Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette; they talk about their experience making the film and so much of their conversation has to do with kids – both young children and teenagers. While I realize Big Buddies aren’t parents, the commentary is applicable to any adult who has young people in his or her life, as it is more about young people and how adults relate to them and role-model for them. If you don’t have a full hour to dedicate to this downloaded podcast, fast forward to minute 24.40 and listen for about five minutes instead. If you ever experience general frustration in having a conversation with your Little Buddy, Ethan Hawke’s insightful synopsis of his character’s conversation with his children (starting at minute 24.40) will surely enlighten you. Let us know your thoughts!
