Director statement

“Films are mostly about script and casting. It’s like pyramids. The base is what keeps it stable. The actors will have agreed because they like the script, and I did it because I loved the script. There are some sad bits and there are some very happy bits in this story. But really it is a film about people and they’re the best type of films. You really do care about these three people and you do fall in love with them. I think we have a film with real heart.”
