“It’s the kind of fight that is not resolved with a handshake two seconds later or a meeting later. There are things here, things that are born out of decades of competition, family and fighting. They have a journey ahead of them.”
“It’s gigantic for them. This is a fight that reestablishes these two men, reestablishes their positions towards each other in the family. Randall is a man who has defined himself by his role in his extended family. With that fractured, what does that do to him? ”
“Kevin is a privileged movie star, well meaning but slightly narcissistic. What does it mean to be a father for the first time to start opening up a bit more in the midst of being separated from your brother, who was always the one who had their shit together?
