INTERVIEW: Eric Bana & Jordan Scott Talk Potent Psychological Shocker ‘A SACRIFICE’

Purify and start again…

This Friday, June 28th sees Vertical release Jordan Scott‘s (Cracks) emotionally turbulent psychological drama, A Sacrifice starring Eric Bana (ChopperHannah), Sadie Sink (“Stranger Things”, The Whale) and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049The Girl in the Spider’s Web).

Directed and penned by Scott, based on Nicholas Hogg’s ‘Tokyo Nobody’ novel, A Sacrifice follows American social psychologist Ben Monroe (Bana) as he investigates a disturbing local Berlin cult. While immersing himself in the case, Ben’s rebellious teenage daughter, Mazzy (Sink), becomes entangled with a mysterious local boy who introduces her to the city’s underground party scene. As Ben’s investigation and Mazzy’s personal life converge on a collision course, Ben is forced into a race against time to save his daughter from escalating dangers.

The cast is rounded out with Jonas Dassler (The Golden Glove), Sophie (A Hidden Life), and Stephan Kampwirth (“Dark”).

The film is produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Pruss for Scott Free Productions in conjunction with Augenschein FilmProduktion’s Jonas Katzenstein, Maximilian Leo, and Georgina Pope.

In anticipation of A Sacrifice releasing in theaters this Friday, CinemaChords’ Howard Gorman sat down with director/writer Scott and star Bana to find out why the original novel jumped out as a perfect story to be adapted for the big screen, the reasons behind taking certain liberties when it came to adapting the source material into a screenplay, and the film’s central commentary about the destructive power of cults on youth.
