'Carnage': Alliances swiftly change during a 'civil' conversation

In "Carnage," the Roman Polanski-directed film adaptation of the play "God of Carnage," two couples -- played by John C. Reilly and Jodie Foster, and Christoph Waltz and Kate Winslet -- gather to discuss a fight their boys have had. But what begins as a civil, amenable conversation looking for resolution quickly devolves into arguments and bitter accusation -- and not just couple against couple. The alliances shift and reshift continuously. 

In this video from the Envelope Screening Series, Reilly and Waltz discuss with Times film writer Rebecca Keegan the role of parenthood in the script and those changing dynamics.
