“When we look back on our experiences, and especially relationships, I think what we do is juxtapose different moments in order to build our emotional landscape in our emotional story. So I wanted to approach the well-trodden path which is the relationship drama in a fresh kind of way and I felt that this was the way to do it. I wanted the film to be experiential, that the audience would hopefully leave because – fingers crossed – feeling like they’ve kind of experienced a relationship and witnessed the relationship. And the writing process was very much about me making as honest a movie as I possibly could.”
