I truly mean it when I say, I adore this young actress! Since seeing her in .Atonement,. I.ve always admired Saoirse Ronan.s talent. And she is equally amazing in .Hanna. where she plays the mysterious title character.
So I was very happy to meet Ronan for this interview where we talked about:
* How hard is it to play Hanna . a role that requires physical, mental, and emotional prowess?
* Why did she want to work with her .Atonement. director, Joe Wright, again?
* How she prepared for the strenuous physical requirements of the role?
* The moral of the story

Meeting Eric Bana for a second time was a delight! I interviewed the actor for 2009.s .Star Trek. and now, I.m blessed to sit with him again for .Hanna. where he plays the title character.s father figure. (Check out my interview with Eric Bana for "Star Trek" right here)
In this "Hanna" interview, we talked about:
* Why did he jump on board for the movie?
* What did he think when director Joe Wright told him that the film will be told with a fairy tale structure?
* Working with Saoirse Ronan
* First-time working with fellow Aussie, Cate Blanchett

Joe Wright received rave reviews with his Academy Award-nominated films such as 2005.s .Pride and Prejudice. and 2007.s .Atonement.. This time, he.s ditching period films to embrace the action genre with .Hanna..
And I looooove the film! Saoirse Ronan, Wright.s muse in .Atonement. reteams with the director in the title role. She.s an assassin, trained by her father (Eric Bana) in order to be able to defend herself from the fast-approaching Marissa (Cate Blanchett).
In this interview, we talked about:
* What made him want to make .Hanna?.
* What informed his choice into shooting and editing the film.s action scenes with almost no cuts?
* The film is told in a fairy tale structure . what inspired him to do that?
* .Hanna. is his homage to women!
* The possibility of so many worlds that .Hanna. can visit!
* Hanna.s persona
* The moral story of the film

I had the pleasure of seeing Joe Wright’s fourth feature tonight, the action/drama/thriller Hanna starring Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, and Eric Bana.

The clip features some of the fantastic The Chemical Brothers score, and a snippet from one of my favorite scenes in the film. Check them out below, followed by production notes from the film.
