Opening in a limited release this Friday, writer/director Ramaa Mosley’s The Brass Teapot blends comedy, drama and fantasy for a modern day fable.
Juno Temple (Killer Joe, The Dark Knight Rises) and Michael Angarano (Red State, Almost Famous) star as Alice and John, a young married couple that happen upon an item of mythical origin. Although it looks on the outside like an ordinary brass teapot, the pair soon learn that it magically fills with money whenever it’s around pain. The question soon becomes about how far, exactly, Alice and John are willing to go to gain a fortune.
ComingSoon.net sat down with the two leads to discuss the origins of the film (which is based on a real legend) and to discuss how the story can serve as an allegory for the transition into adulthood and the importance of responsibility.
The Brass Teapot arrives in theaters April 5 and is also now available On Demand.
