Ascending British actress / Oscar hopeful Sally Hawkins and I got all bicoastal by phone a fortnight ago. I apologize profusely for the irritable sound but I blame the luxury hotel she was ensconced in whilst promoting Mike Leigh's new charmer Happy-Go-Lucky.
<-- Poppy Talk!
Nevertheless I thought I couldn't not share the lovely conversation we had about her character "Poppy". We ponder Oscar buzz. We get into the nitty-gritty of Mike Leigh's famous production process. We gush about costume designer Jacqueline Durran (Atonement. green dress -- discuss). We wrap up with biopic talk. We even share a P.J. Harvey moment. Uh huh, her.
Once Sally and I are done chatting, there's a few listener calls to be answered on Doubt, Rachel Getting Married, Slumdog Millionaire and Kate Winslet's double dipping December.

If you're without, bless you, there's a standard mp3 for your listening pleasure.
