Interview: Kelly Macdonald on No Country for Old Men

Kelly MacdonaldThe Coen Brothers have returned with No Country for Old Men – an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s 2005 novel and now the most critically acclaimed film of the year.

Set in West Texas it is the story of a hunter named Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) who stumbles across a suitcase of cash after a drug deal gone wrong.

He is then pursued by a ruthless hitman (Javier Bardem) whilst a local sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) tries to keep up with them.

Kelly Macdonald plays Llewelyn’s wife, Carla Jean, who is also forced into hiding whilst her husband is on the run.

I spoke to her recently about the film, how she got cast, what it is like working with the Coens and the performances of her fellow actors in the film.
