“The film is incredibly emotional. It was an extraordinary scenario. I remember when I first read it, I thought it was very relevant and sincere. It was very exciting for me to become a part of this project, ”the actor shared his feelings. “I was thinking about my grandfather, my father. I reflected on my own father’s experience. All of this was a huge source of inspiration to me, ”added Timberlake.
