Gleeson: Jolie is 'great' director
Angelina Jolie is an impressive director, Domhnall Gleeson has revealed.
The Irish actor got the chance to work with the actress turned filmmaker on war drama Unbroken.
" She likes to get stuck in. She's some woman. She's great," he gushed.
The 30-year-old continued: "She was everything you want from a great director, you know. She was caring and present - she has a lot of drive and talent and all of those things you need people to be if you really trust the director, and I totally trusted her.
"I think that's about as high a compliment an actor could give a director."
Domhnall, who has been cast in JJ Abrams' new Star Wars film, next stars in Frank alongside Michael Fassbender. He plays an aspiring young musician who joins a band, dreaming of stardom.
The actor - the son of actor Brendan - admitted it wasn't easy learning to play the keyboard for the role.
"I can play the fiddle, the traditional classical instrument, a little bit but I had to learn keyboards for the film. So that was tough, but I learnt what I needed to know and not much else," he said.
He added: "We got to rock out a little bit so that was cool."
Frank, which had its UK premiere at the Sundance London festival, opens in cinemas on May 9.
