Your movie is about a big, blended family that has to find a way to come together. We hear a lot these days about families being in trouble. What qualities do families need to stay together?
Love. Families need a spiritual bond with one another and with God. God is the only way you're going to make it in life, the glue that holds everything together.
What's your own religious background, and where are you with it now?
I grew up Baptist and still go to church. I myself have explored other religions, because I want to know what it is that makes other people tick. I find we're all talking about the same thing, really-it's all God.
What things have you explored? Have you traveled places or met certain people that had an impact on you?
I went around the world three times and made it a point to ask people what it is that they believe and why.
What's the most interesting thing you heard?
You went to India with a Baptist minister, right?
