Interviewing SIFF honoree, Ethan Hawke

The Seattle International Film Festival just wrapped up, but not before honoring a Hollywood renaissance man whose career has spanned more than three decades.

Ethan Hawke's breakout role came in 1989's "Dead Poet Society" opposite Robin Williams. Since then he's made more than five dozen films, including memorable turns in "Reality Bites", "Gattica" and "Before Sunrise".

In 2001, Hawke received his first Oscar nomination, playing the rookie cop in "Training Day".

He received another Oscar nod in 2014 for his moving performance in "Boyhood".

This year Hawke is busier than ever, he's received raves for his portrayal of a priest facing a crisis of faith in "First Reformed", and he also directed the new film "Blaze" about songwriter Blaze Foley.

Last week SIFF honored Hawke with the festival's Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award. I caught up with him and Blaze actor Ben Dickey at Seattle's Light In The Attic Records.
