It’s a big night for Canadian father-and-son duo Kiefer and Donald Sutherland, premiering their film Forsaken at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
It is the first time they have starred together onscreen in a movie and it has been 31 years since Kiefer brought his first film to TIFF – The Bay Boy.
The Alberta-shot western features Kiefer as embittered gunslinger John Henry Clayton who attempts to make amends with his estranged father Reverend Clayton (played by Donald) whilst their community is besieged by ruthless land-grabbers.
We caught up with Kiefer at the premiere and asked him what it was like to work with his father Donald on this all-Canadian film. And we asked him about acting in a western again over 26 years after Young Guns and how the experience differed for him this time around with Forsaken. Watch below.
We chatted with Donald at the premiere to talk about working with son Kiefer. Watch the interview below.
