Writer Statement

What to do about actors you’ve always wanted to work with, who are constantly busy but are finally available, and who also happen to be your children? Write a film for them and hope they all sign on. And thankfully, they did! I wanted to give them something heavy to play around with but also a bit cheeky which they ran with and in turn, created something really nuanced, disturbing, and fun. Getting to finally collaborate with Daisy and Gracie, and another wonderful actor, Bernard Scudder (who’s been part of my family for years), was definitely a highlight in my career.
