Greta Gerwig, Jesse Thorn, Youtube discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn


That feeling of home and hearth that lake pile of girls reading the letter letter feeling right that is so essential to the film. Yeah I mean I think it's funny. I never thought about it is. There's no real antagonist inist until people started bringing that up to me and I was like. Oh yeah they're right there isn't I guess for me. I don't know with all movies but but particularly with this story. If felt like the thing was I wanted people to crawl inside the screen and live there with these people. People and I don't know all directors are all different but for me like I need to love my actors like I need to feel like I I mean because I'm spending all this time with them to and so That I I picked people that I love and then I I hope hopefully hopefully shoot them lovingly and then then everybody gets a big warm feeling I I mean it's not the only thing I'm interested in but Certainly with this story was a big part of it it's bull's eye I'm Jesse Thorn. I'm talking with Greta Gerwig. So as you mentioned the structure the film and the structure of little women hangs on the question of marriage. Yes and you set that up right right up top. Yeah Mary do dead. Yeah married her dad. Do you intend the story in your film. To end ambiguously in terms of marriage I do the end of the book on the one hand and then do the end of life on the other hand. I always find that question actually symptoms of asked you know in Q.. Naser they were like but what really happened. This is all fiction. I don't even know what the ontological reality of that question is in terms of You know I definitely had an idea behind it of real and fiction but the fiction is just as real as the real because it's all constructed anyway but you you know. Maybe it's my like Christopher Nolan spinning up at the end with a dream I don't know Greta Gerwig I have have so love both of your movies and I'm so grateful. He came back here to talk about this.
