British actor George MacKay had already been cast as Ned Kelly in “True Story of the Kelly Gang” when director Justin Kurzel called him and the other young actors together for a last-minute change of plans. “He was like, ‘We’re going to let go of the history, and we’re going to make it an experience of these men,’” MacKay said of Kurzel’s decision to add a dash of modern attitude to the well-worn legend of the 19th-century outlaw who is an Australian analog to Robin Hood or Billy the Kid.

‘1917’ Editor Lee Smith on Being the Film’s Invisible Secret Weapon [Interview]

The “hidden man” is how editor Lee Smith sees himself in 1917. Not for a second did Smith want audiences paying attention to his cuts or tricks, but to instead immerse themselves in director Sam Mendes‘ World War I story, which is constructed to take place in one seemingly unbroken take. Despite the obvious technical wizardry and razzle-dazzle, they pulled it off. Audiences were caught up in the feeling and exhilaration of 1917, not the craft of 1917.
