In Alistair Banks Griffin’s psychodrama “The Wolf Hour,” Naomi Watts plays June Leigh, a fearful author who’s isolated herself from the outside world by holing up in her fifth-floor South Bronx walk-up during the 1977 New York blackout riots. Watts and Griffin dropped by TheWrap Studios at Sundance to talk about the film with TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman, and Watts made the case for her character being locked up in the movie.

“She has made a great case for staying locked up inside, things don’t work for her out there in the world anymore, she hurts people, she hurts herself,” said Watts. “She’s orchestrated her life to work in a comfort zone, or somewhat, and just rely on people when she absolutely has to.”
