The 2013 edition of the Sundance Film Festival is now in its second week, and the stars continue to shine in Park City.
Earlier this week, former "Transformers" and "Indiana Jones" star Shia LaBeouf discussed his new film, "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," with HitFix.
In the interview video (above), LaBeouf tells HitFix's Katie Hasty how "Charlie" is a refreshingly realistic look at the perils of young love that avoids the trappings of typical Hollywood "cookie cutter" romances and is a "movie that speaks to your age." In a somewhat unexpected twist , he also reveals that the original narration -- by Zsa Zsa Gabor -- helped sell him on the film.
In the film, an ordinary young man named Charlie (LaBeouf) falls for a gangster's moll named Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood). Her violently obsessive husband Nigel ("Casino Royale" villain Mads Mikkelsen) isn't too happy about it, but Charlie's willing to make the ultimate sacrifice --hence the title -- in order to save her.
Directed by Fredrik Bond, "Charlie" also stars "Harry Potter" star Rupert Grint, Aubrey Plaza and Til Schweiger.
