July 14, 2016 by Screenmag
In the latest installment of our popular feature, Sara Wolfson, producer at Daily Planet, answers Five Questions with SCREEN.
SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what’s your go-to dish?
WOLFSON: I can cook, but rarely do because I am exceedingly lazy. But I am known for my brisket. I don’t want to break my arm patting myself on the back, but it’s pretty freaking phenomenal.
SCREEN: What’s your guilty pleasure TV?
WOLFSON: I am too deeply ashamed to publicly admit some of the things I choose to watch. But I will burn my house to the ground and salt the earth so that nothing will grow there again before ever turning on an episode of the Kardashians. The only way I watch that crap is Clockwork Orange style.
SCREEN: What’s the last movie you saw in a theater?
WOLFSON: I saw THE LEGEND OF TARZAN on Sunday. Alexander Skarsgard has his shirt off a lot, which, I felt, was integral to the plot and really advanced the story. #NoRegrets
SCREEN: What's your favorite place to spend a week? A weekend? Two weeks?
WOLFSON: A weekend: My couch, with a full DVR and a well stocked beer fridge. A week: Any place new to explore. Two weeks: Seriously, I haven’t had a full two weeks off without work since summer vacation before my senior year in college. I wouldn’t even know what to do with that amount of time.
SCREEN: What's your favorite American city? Foreign city?
WOLFSON: US City (other than Chicago) - Portland. Either Maine or Oregon. I'll take either. Don't care. I love them both. The food, the culture, everything. Foreign City - I guess I’d have to say whatever city I’m planning on visiting next? Kind of a cop out, but I’m all about anticipation.
SCREEN: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
WOLFSON: Passover. Kind of random, but I love it. I think the retelling of the story of the Exodus from Egypt reminds me to be thankful for what I have, when so often, I tend to dwell on what I wish I had. It doesn't matter what your religion is - it's something we can all appreciate. I have a bunch of people over and feed them (I love feeding people) and we all share something with millions of people across the globe, stretching back across generations. It makes me feel very connected to the world, to my faith, and to my past in a way other holidays and other celebrations don’t.
