Alexander Payne is not only an Academy Award-winning Screenwriter, Director and Producer, he is also a Nebraskan, who’s made many of his movies back home. Â And, no surprise, one of our most popular Salon guests.
Before he won the Oscar for Sideways, before About Schmidt and Election and Citizen Ruth…there was THE PASSION OF MARTIN. Â The story of a photographer who falls in love with one of his subjects, this 50-minute dark comedy was Alexander’s UCLA film thesis. Â It became a Sundance Film Festival selection and the film that put him on track to becoming one of Hollywood’s major players.
