LASSE HALLSTROM

Here is an excerpt from Scott Holleran's interview (Renaissance Man) with Lasse Hallström.

Box Office Mojo: Why did you move to America?

Hallstrom: For the adventure. In 1987, I think I had the fantasy of becoming an American filmmaker. Doors and possibilities opened for an American adventure. I was hooked. I had kids who went to school here and had roots. And, then, suddenly I had no strong [pangs] for Sweden. We go [to Sweden] for three months of the year and it doesn't feel as dramatic when we have to go back [to the United States]. I may soon become an American citizen with dual citizenship.
