In ‘Palmer,’ Timberlake embraces stillness of a broken man
Timberlake’s had star turns in films like “Friends with Benefits” and “Inside Llewyn Davis,” but “Palmer” marks his time as a solo film headliner. Ad“Palmer” called for Timberlake to tone down his exuberance and play an intense, quiet, broken man living in a town where everyone knows his story. Director Fisher Stevens said he and Timberlake talked a lot about “stillness and trusting” while shooting the film. Palmer was raised with a more “stereotypical idea” of what it means to be a man and has to expand his mindset. And that’s kind of why I wanted to make the film,” Stevens said.
