Robert Duvall - Robert Duvall & Melissa Leo Wowed By Businessman's Generosity On Film Set

Veteran actors Robert Duvall and Melissa Leo had a wonderful time filming Seven Days In Utopia because they were taken in by a local millionaire.
An unnamed businessman offered up his sprawling Utopia ranch to the cast and crew and invited them to live and film there.
Duvall says, "It was the best location of my career, right at the top. Utopia has the best, blue waters and a beautiful spring river that my wife and Melissa Leo jumped right in in their clothes; it was so inviting.
"They opened their arms to us and the ranch was owned by a very wealthy guy... They gave us full use for filming and they offered us their livestock, motorcycles, horses and places to live while we were filming there.
"The owner built his daughter a French restaurant right in town that was only open for dinner one night a week."
Leo adds, "It was a welcome change from eating tuna fish and chips from craft services... It was amazing."
