London Film Festival 2007: Michael Pena and Andrew Garfield on Lions for Lambs

Lions for Lambs had its world premiere last week at the London Film Festival and I recently spoke to two of the actors in the film, Michael Pena and Andrew Garfield.

Michael Pena and Andrew Garfield

It is a political drama dealing with the current war on terror by focusing on three interconnected stories: a Senator (Tom Cruise) briefs a journalist (Meryl Streep) about a new government strategy for Afghanistan conflict; a college professor (Robert Redford) tries to awaken a promising but apathetic student (Andrew Garfield); and two US soldiers (Michael Pena and Derek Luke) become stranded on an Afghan mountain.

Directed by Redford, it is the first film under the new United Artists studio which Cruise now runs with Paula Wagner after his departure last year from Paramount.
