film director

“What if someone likes me but doesn’t get my movies? Does that matter? And why does it matter? Is it OK for someone to love me but not love everything I do? Or is my ego so frail it can’t take it? The script flowed from that concept, and as it did, it became about marriage, truth, loyalty, and parenting.”
