Colin Farrell was the recipient of the esteemed Navigator Award, during the Celestial Cinema on Friday night at the 16th annual Maui Film Festival. Maui Now’s Malika Dudley caught up with Farrell for a one-on-one interview.
The Maui Film Festival Navigator Award “honors a film artist for carving a path of distinction through the turbulent waters of the entertainment industry without sacrificing their fundamental commitment to excellence.”
“Colin Farrell is a chameleon who constantly creates one-of-a-kind characters that send pitch perfect pebble-to-boulder-sized ripples through whatever story his performance is helping to tell,” said festival founder and director Barry Rivers. “In short, Colin is a cinematic force of nature and, for that reason, the Maui Film Festival takes great pride in honoring him with its 2015 Navigator Award.”
Farrell was in the recent film adaptation of “Miss Julie,” directed by Liv Ullmann, starring opposite Jessica Chastain. He also appeared in the Disney film “Saving Mr. Banks” with Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, and in 2009, he earned a Golden Globe for his role in “In Bruges.”
Farrell is now shooting the second season of the HBO drama “True Detective,” starring opposite Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughan. He recently finished an independent film, “The Lobster,” starring opposite Rachel Weisz.
Other films include “Seven Psychopaths,” “Winter’s Tale,” “Dead Man Down,” “Total Recall,” “The Way Back,” “London Boulevard,” “Fright Night,” “Horrible Bosses,” “Ondine,” “Pride and Glory,” “Cassandra’s Dream,” “Miami Vice,” “Alexander,” “The New World,” “Ask the Dust,” “The Recruit,” “A Home at the End of the World,” “Phone Booth,” “Minority Report,” “Daredevil,” “American Outlaws,” “SWAT,” “Intermission” and “Tigerland.”
