We're the Millers is rated R for lots of reasons that make it not-so-appropriate for crowds under 18 and seriously blush-inducing for those over. But we braved a screening anyway and can safely report that Will Poulter, an up-and-comer from London, steals the show as the endearingly awkward like, super awkward teen boy—quite a feat, since he shares the screen with Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, and Emma Roberts. On the heels of the movie's release, we caught up with the hilarious actor to hear about starring alongside some of Hollywood's funniest actors, filming the movie adaptation of The Maze Runner , and rapping to TLC. It's a strange thing, that it's actually out and that people are seeing it on the other side of the world from where I am. But yeah, it's great that people can finally get a chance to see it. We worked really hard on it!
But the film also deals with one of the most controversial social issues of our time, abortion, and does that once again in a rare honest way. When I met Jenny and Gillian I wanted to avoid asking them the same questions all over again and given how I only had the standard fifteen minutes, I focused my attention on two topics: the challenging tone of the film and the way they think their work might affect and inspire people. I believe that tone is the hardest thing to accomplish for both screenwriters and filmmakers and dramedy is most certainly the trickiest genre in that respect. The Sundance Film Festival where Obvious Child premiered has often become a showcase for films that try too hard at being quirky. Yours is never anything short of genuine, honest and authentic.
