Sutherland has wonderful things to say about Demi’s on-screen character of Mary-Alice Watson, his love interest in the film.
“I just think she’s an extraordinary actor and she has a real pioneer spirit,” Sutherland says of Moore’s performance in the movie. “I think of the women that helped break through to the West of this country, and helped develop the West of this country. They were incredibly strong and Demi is an incredibly strong woman.”
Kiefer also stars with his dad – Donald Sutherland – in “Forsaken,” a film about a gunslinger who tries making amends with his estranged father.
Demi Moore plays a married woman who’s Sutherland’s “unrequited love interest,” according to the report.
Kiefer adds that he was taken aback by Demi’s “dedication” to the role. She wasn’t wearing any makeup on the first day he saw her on the set. He was amazed how she took on the role and is impressed with her as a person as well.
