Jena Malone talks about her next film 'The Messenger' and her music
The Messenger (2009)
Brief Synopsis: An American soldier struggles with an ethical dilemma when he becomes involved with a widow of a fallen officer.
A recent interview of Jena at Dark Horizons asked her about this film. Read it below:
Question: Tell me about The Messenger. What is that? You play a character in that called Kelly, right?
Malone: I do.
Question: And this movie is about--
Malone: It's about a lot of things. It's hard to talk about what it's about and what it's not about. For me it's about the sort of, the re-imagining of how long can work in a world where we have to deal with a lot of loss and pain, and how to re-imagine yourselves. That love can come in many forms, with friendship, touch, and discovery. It's about this soldier, Ben Foster plays, who comes back from Iraq with injuries, and has two months left on his tour, and is enrolled as a communication officer. So he sort of becomes the, to go and notify the family members of soldier's death. Partners with Woody Harrelson. It becomes a strange film about, you know, male companionship and sort of the roots of it. And I play Ben Foster's ex-girlfriend that is now to be engaged after he comes back.
