The actor has sung the praises of the Oscar nominated director
Lenny Abrahamson might be on full nail-biting duty ahead of the Oscars ceremony on Sunday night, but he's already a winner in Colin Farrell's eyes.
The actor attended an Irish Film Board and IDA pre-Oscars event in Los Angeles, and was gushing in his praise for the director.
"I thought Room was extraordinary, it's such a unique piece of cinematic art," Farrell said. "It's kind of like he's been very methodical and very conscious in how he's taken on bigger and bigger canvasses. He's just extraordinary."
He also added that, given the chance, he'd work with Abrahamson "in a second". Abrahamson is part of the considerable Irish interest in the Academy Awards on Sunday, where Saoirse Ronan, Michael Fassbender and Emma Donoghue will also be hoping they'll need another suitcase on the way home.
