“The revenge is kind of the engine that this character harnesses her grief to,” Hunter tells TheWrap
Holly Hunter plays a mother overcome by the loss of her grown son in “Strange Weather,” and though she’s never lost a child herself, the Oscar-winning actress says grief is universal.
“I talked to people who have experienced it, I know people who have experienced it. There are probably a great amount of us who have come into contact … with that particular kind of loss,” Hunter told TheWrap’s Matt Donnelly about preparing for the role.
“I felt more that this was a story of grief and how to deal with it, which is something that everyone experiences,” she continued.
