@Tribeca: David Bowie and Son Don't Talk Much (about space)

For Movieline, Stu Van Airsdale boldly goes there with Duncan Jones, director of the acclaimed science fiction thriller Moon. With Jones’ father, space-oddity rock icon David Bowie, in the house for the film’s Tribeca Film Festival screening, Van Airsdale had to ask: “what’s up with you and your dad and space?” Jones responded, “We don’t really talk about it that much. I don’t know if it’s coincidental. But obviously his interest in it was something I was surrounded by growing up. So it had a huge impact on me just because it was part of my environment and my experience growing up.” Unfortunately, Jones didn’t divulge any dad-as-Stardust memories, but he’s probably saving that for a later film project. I think if David Bowie was my dad, I would be too intimidated to do or say anything remotely uncool.

Sony Pictures Classics will release Moon on June 12. Here’s the trailer:
