“It’s very hard not to like him” – Ritesh Batra on directing Jim Broadbent in The Sense of an Ending

I once interviewed Jim Broadbent to mark the release of his congenial drama Le Week-End, and off camera politely asked if he’s consider adopting me as a grandson. Naturally he looked weirded out by such a request and brushed it away instantly – but the intention stands, for he’s one of the most affable, endearing actors working in England – and it’s a sentiment shared by Ritesh Batra, director of The Sense of an Ending.

“It’s very hard not to like Jim, both in person and on screen, he’s a very endearing presence,” Batra said. “I always read about how Tony is an unlikeable character but since I read the novel I’ve always liked Tony, but perhaps that’s to do with me not being from here. I always loved Tony, but Jim makes it very easy to like him, definitely.”
