Opening this weekend is director Alexandre Aja’s thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax. If you’re not familiar with the film, the story centers on a young boy, Louis (Aiden Longworth), who has survived eight near-death experiences, but plunges off a cliff on his ninth birthday. While he survives the fall, he stays in a coma, and it’s up to an intrepid doctor (Jamie Dornan) to find out the truth about what happened to Louis while also happening to fall for Louis’ mother (Sarah Gadon). The film also stars Aaron Paul, Oliver Platt, Molly Parker, and Barbara Hershey. The 9th Life of Louis Drax is based on the novel by Liz Jensen and the script was written by Max Minghella. You can watch the trailer here.
At the recent Los Angles press day for the film I landed an exclusive video interview with Jamie Dornan. He talked about memorable moments from filming, how did dad used to give him script notes, what he used to collect, his karaoke song, and more. Check out what he had to say in the video above. For more with Jamie Dornan, you can watch my set visit video interview with him and Sarah Gadon.
