Zoey spoke to WWD at the festival to explain how doing press there is so much different than for other movies.

“Generally when you are doing movie press, you are holed up in a room and you don’t see sunlight for 13 hours and this is so beautiful,” she said while looking out a window at the snowy scenery.

FYI: Zoey is wearing an A.L.C. sweater and pants.

It’s not just about his skin color, it’s about his culture. It’s about where he grew up. It’s about what does it mean, what are the alliances growing in Washington, D.C. southeast, where I happen to personally have grown up.”
