About Schmidt - Alexander Payne Interview

Posted on: November 18, 2002 | Views: 160 | Comment

The director talks about the characters in About Schmidt, and how the film was adapted from the novel.

After he's forced into retirement and his wife passes away, Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) feels quite lost. His daughter is getting married, though, so he packs up his RV and drives across Nebraska to the wedding. He feels washed up, a failure with no hope for redemption. He shares his innermost thoughts with a pen pal, a third-world boy he's sponsoring, and stumbles upon his joie de vivre in the process.
