Declaration

film director

“How do I get this film to be as emotional as the book that it’s based on? I guess the answer was to try to be truthful and faithful to the material, to Cheryl’s voice. That voice is the strength of the book. It had to be the strength of the film. Cheryl has such a way of talking about herself – her take on life, on death, love, her cruel honesty, her compassion, her desire to embrace life, to heal, to grief, to try to understand, what the hell is wrong, ‘what the f*ck am I doing?’ she wonders after just taking her first step on the trail.”
