Back to One

A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

The Adults Special Episode with Michael Cera, Sophia Lillis and Hannah Gross (Back To One, Episode 263)

Actors Michael Cera, Sophia Lillis, and Hannah Gross from the film The Adults.

These interviews were recorded prior to the SAG/AFTRA strike, in June 2023, as part of the Tribeca Festival. 

On this special episode of Back To One, actors Sophia Lillis, Hannah Gross and Michael Cera talk about their work in writer/director Dustin Guy Defa’s wonderful new film The Adults. We get a glimpse into each of their general preparation processes before doing a deep dive into their work on this actor-centric production. They each talk about how they built the reality of their complex sibling relationship, why the songs and dances that play such a big part in their characters’ past feel so organic, the extremely hard task of being truly unfunny and much more. The Adults opens in select U.S. cities on August 18th.
