In Reservation Road, Mark Ruffalo plays Dwight --a divorced lawyer drifting through life who accidentally strikes and kills a young boy with his SUV one night -- and drives away, leaving shattered lives in his wake. Ruffalo's performance is careful and yet raw, sincere and complex -- and his work opposite Joaquin Phoenix (who plays the father bereaved by Dwight's accident) has riveting power. Ruffalo spoke with Cinematical in Toronto about tackling tough characters, working opposite Phoenix and his character's love of the Red Sox.
