Little boy in the cinema
Gracey does not want to say exactly how that story will be told. What he did say during an interview with Deadline is that he did his film (which has the working title Better Man got) wants to create the same feeling he had in the cinema as a child.
“I remember going to the cinema as a boy. Certain movies really blew me off my pedestal and made me say, “I’ve never seen this before.” I just want the audience to get that same feeling with my films. ”
Robbie Williams’ story is not that fairytale. Rather, it shows how passionate the young Briton was. He was not some “musical genius” sooner or later to be discovered all over the world. Williams “had big dreams and he followed them”.
Will, vision and confidence
“He may not be the best singer or dancer, but he has managed to sell over 80 million albums,” said Gracey. “You can recognize yourself in this guy who doesn’t think he has exceptional talent.”
“But of course he has. What he still has is the will, the vision and the confidence to say ‘now I’m going to pursue my dreams’. ”
