"I love all of the work of the Dardenne brothers, but 'The Child' and 'The Son' in particular stand out.

"I love the style of their films. They're kind of like the kings of realism right now with how subtle they are and the way they just stick with their characters all the way through. To me, that's real moviemaking. That's where you get to that next level.

"The Child' grabbed me from the opening scene. It's a film I look to again and again. The Dardenne brothers continue to inspire me when I direct my own things."

James Franco can currently be seen in "The Rise of the Planet of the Apes."
