'The Whale': A conversation with Idaho native Sam Hunter


The movie “The Whale” is gaining critical acclaim around the globe. It stars Brendan Fraser and tells the story of a reclusive English teacher who is trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter.

The movie is an adaption of a 2012 play written by Idaho native Sam Hunter, who also wrote the screenplay for the film. Our Morning Edition host George Prentice got to sit down with Hunter to talk about the new movie.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
