You already know who Max Winkler’s father is. He’s that guy Henry Winkler aka Fonzie, but those were Happy Days, and it’s about time you learned now about who Max is. He’s not trying to step into the shoes of who his father is or was, he’s just trying to make a name for himself, only behind the camera instead. Winkler’s newest film Flower is his second feature and a damn good one to boot. Riding on the strength of a strong lead performance from Zoey Deutch, Winkler has a light and sunny approach, inspired by movies such as Harrold and Maude or Rushmore, there is a refreshing ease to his style. AMovieGuy.com was lucky enough to talk to Max about his newest film, his brief career as an actor, and the strong advice his dad gives him.
AMG.COM: First of all, congratulations with the film Flower, I really enjoyed it.
