Haggis and actor Brendan Fraser, who plays an ambitious district attorney in the film, discuss the making of the film with NPR's Neal Conan and take questions from callers.
Paul Haggis, director-writer-producer. Haggis was recently nominated for an Oscar for writing the screenplay of Million Dollar Baby. Wrote, directed and produced Crash.
