It’s already been such a remarkable experience being a part of this film, and working alongside such incredible talents as T Bone Burnett, Jeff Bridges, & Stephen Bruton. To be recognized today by the Hollywood Foreign Press for “The Weary Kind” – together with musical legend T Bone Burnett – is such an honor! What amazing company to be a part of."

This was a year with a lot of big comedies and I’m glad that our movie stays with people.”
