QUOTED: Inside the 'Dom Hemingway' Press Conference at TIFF ‘13
Jude Law hears disembodied voices and deals with questions about getting old

Director Richard Sheppard and actors Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir, Emilia Clarke, and Madalina Ghenea sat down with the press yesterday afternoon to help explain Dom Hemingway, a black comedy / gangster film / family drama / absolutely absurd film that premiered Sunday night at the Princess of Wales. Law was in good spirits, but seemed to struggle when it came to seeing the press behind the bright stage lights. “Who’s asking that?” he demanded at one point while shielding his eyes from the light. “I can’t see! It’s really unnerving when you just hear a voice!” One particularly courageous reporter asked Law how he feels about getting older in the industry. “In my experience, in the last few years, there have been a few more interesting roles,” replied Law.

A major theme of the film is the notion of karma and luck. When asked what he thought of these, Grant laughed,  “If you’re a shit, it’ll come back to you, and if you’re Judi Dench, you’ll be Oscared until your last breath.”

Law clearly enjoyed playing the foul-mouthed and erratic Dom Hemingway, saying, “He has a brilliant turn of phrase and a wonderful ability to riff off ideas, much of which is punctuated with fantastic profanity and use of the (F) word in various guises. And many other words – Cs and Bs and all sorts of things flying around… I liked the challenge, and the challenge seemed enormous.”
