Improvisation, attention, creation: Stephen Colbert In Conversation With Maggie Gyllenhaal

I saw this interview Stephen Colbert did with director and actor Maggie Gyllenhaal live at the Montclair Film Festival. Gyllenhaal talked about directing her first film and how her experience as an actor informed that. Many of her answers had the weight of intentional thought. She has theories, polished over time, tempered by experience, and honed by wisdom. Rich content! Colbert is knew how to tee up questions and get out of the way, which is one of the marks of a great interview.
