Some people have bad days. Henry Altmann (Williams) has one every day. Always unhappy and angry at the world including everyone in it, Henry sits impatiently at the doctor’s office when he is finally seen by Dr. Sharon Gill (Kunis). Sharon, who is enduring her own bad day, reveals that Henry has a brain aneurysm. This news makes Henry even angrier, yelling at Sharon he demands to know how much time he has left. Faced with Henry’s anger and insults, Sharon abruptly tells him he has only 90 minutes. Shocked and reeling by this news, Henry storms out of the office leaving Sharon stunned by what she has just done in a lapse of judgment. As Sharon goes on a city-wide search, Henry struggles with his diagnosis, determined to make amends with everyone he has hurt in his life.
Phil Alden Robinson, director of The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, talked with COLLIDER about the movie, how he attracted the strong cast and what the actors brought to the film… Here’s what he said about Mila.
Mila is also very good in the film. It’s interesting. Mila is what I call a fast actress. She can access the emotions or the colors that she needs for a scene so quickly. She doesn’t need a lot of prep time. Some actors need prep time for each shot, but not her. She can get right to it. There’s a great example. There’s a scene where she’s on the bus and she’s crying. This is how low budget and indie we were. We shot that bus as we were actually moving from one location to another. We had finished the James Earl Jones scene in the morning. We had to move the whole company to where the bus breakdown was going to be shot. Rather than put everybody in vans, we said as long as we’re traveling, let’s put Mila and the camera on the bus as we go to the next location and shoot this scene on the way so that it doesn’t take any time out of the day. And so, we were on the bus literally going to the next location, and I saw that we were going under an overpass, and I thought, “Oh this will be cool because the bus will be dark, and as it comes out of the overpass, it will be light.” I just turned to the cameraman and said, “Just roll, right now,” and I said, “Mila, action!” We were dark and we panned down from the ceiling. Three seconds later, when we come to her and the lights come on, she’s crying. I thought that’s real skill. That’s an amazing gift.
