Premiering in the "Next" section here at Sundance is a great little gem called 'The Lie,' which features three indie veterans guaranteed to always give you a good show: Joshua Leonard, Jess Weixler and Mark Webber. Co-written and directed by Leonard, 'The Lie' follows a married couple (Leonard and Weixler) in their early 30s who feel that the responsibility of their new child is preventing them from achieving their own life goals. Naturally, this causes distress in their relationship, and it gets worse when Lonnie (Leonard) tells a horrible lie to get out of work -- a lie that goes on to alter his life in unexpected ways.
We caught Leonard, Weixler and Webber for a five-minute chat about the film, how difficult it was to make, and whether it's impossible to be a responsible parent and truly happy. The video itself runs a bit longer than five minutes (more like seven), but these three are so much fun to talk to and hang out with that we could've easily gone on all day. Hopefully you'll agree. Check out the video after the jump, and stay tuned for our review of 'The Lie' later this week.
