Van Sant: 'Henry Hopper is like dad Dennis'

By
Restless
Gus Van Sant has said that Henry Hopper is very much like his famous father Dennis, who died a year ago.

Henry stars in Van Sant's Restless, which premiered this week at the 64th Cannes Film Festival.

Van Sant told The Hollywood Reporter that he could "very strongly" tell that Henry was Dennis's son when he was working him.

"He resembles his father," the director explained. "There were a lot of things that reminded me of Dennis, especially his early career."

Describing his movie, Van Sant added: "It has a certain fantasy element to it. The tone is very light in the face of very dark adversity, but the characters are kind of making the most of their lives while they can, so it has a kind of light story.

"The characters don't really see a reason to become disenchanted with their lives. They're looking on the bright side."
